Nominated for 1 Academy Award: Best Costume Design
A man ahead of his time, Cyrano de Bergerac (Peter Dinklage) dazzles, both with ferocious wordplay at a verbal joust and brilliant swordplay in a duel. But convinced that his appearance renders him unworthy of the love of a devoted friend, the luminous Roxanne (Haley Bennett), Cyrano has yet to declare his feelings for her — and Roxanne has fallen in love, at first sight, with Christian (Kelvin Harrison Jr.). Directed by Joe Wright (ATONEMENT) with an original score courtesy of the creative team behind The National, whose melodies and textures provide this period musical with a sense of the present.
“With its swooping cameras and beyond-dazzling production design, Wright’s style is more alive than ever, giving new meaning to the word ‘panache.’” —Peter Debruge, Variety “Almost every shot is framed like a Renaissance painting, and the songs, by members of indie-rock stalwarts The National, have an earnest, orchestral tunefulness.” —Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly “Dinklage saves the day, being worldly, wry, and mournfully amused at the cruelties of fate. Even his swordplay has a comic agility; talk about a rapier wit.” —Anthony Lane, The New Yorker “Dinklage gives you his appeal and his sense of self-loathing. It's both the single most sorrowful and the sexiest take on Cyrano you've ever seen.” —David Fear, Rolling Stone
