No nostril, extra issues? In Cyrano, the brand new movie based mostly on the stage musical by Erica Schmidt, the titular outcast Cyrano de Bergerac doesn’t have his famously massive nostril. As an alternative, he’s performed by Emmy Award winner Peter Dinklage, who has a type of dwarfism known as achondroplasia, at his dapperest and heroic, spinning swords and swinging onto levels. As these acquainted with the Netflix YA romance The Half of It (or the unique by Edmond Rostand) know, Cyrano quietly pines for his outdated good friend Roxanne (Haley Bennett), going to this point for her happiness that he helps a brand new man, Christian (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) serenade her with poetry. However this time they sing! Cyrano has music by Bryce and Aaron Dessner of the Nationwide and it’s certain to have a maintain on The Best Showman followers amongst us. Haley Bennett gazing out of an open carriage window as she sings about love? Kelvin Harrison Jr. in Duke of Hastings cosplay? Peter Dinklage’s vegan puppy-dog eyes full of warring feelings? Hollywood is getting too good at reimagining tales we’ve already reimagined. Directed by Joe Wright and co-starring Ben Mendelsohn, Cyrano arrives in theaters December 31.
