Cyrano (2021) movie review

Love Once Removed

A re-imagining of the classic play, CYRANO DE BERGERAC, the story of a man wooing his love by proxy.

Cyrano de Bergerac (played by Peter Dinklage) dazzles whether with ferocious wordplay at a verbal joust or with 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) - MGM
