Cyrano, released in 2021 and directed by Joe Wright, is a modern retelling of the classic French story Cyrano de Bergerac. The film stars Peter Dinklage as Cyrano, Haley Bennett as Roxanne, and Kelvin Harrison Jr. as Christian. Cyrano is a gifted poet who struggles with his appearance. He has a large nose that has caused him to feel insecure and self-conscious his entire life. However, despite his physical quirks, Cyrano is charming, witty, and intelligent. Roxanne, his childhood friend, is beautiful, intelligent, and kind but has a limited vision due to her short-sightedness.

Cyrano has been in love with Roxanne for as long as he can remember but has never had the courage to confess his feelings to her. When he discovers that Roxanne has a crush on a handsome young man named Christian, Cyrano takes it upon himself to help them both out.

Christian is a handsome, but dull young man who is unable to express himself verbally. In an effort to win Roxanne's heart, Cyrano agrees to help Christian by writing love letters on his behalf. Roxanne, who is smitten with Christian's looks, is immediately taken with the heartfelt and eloquent letters that Cyrano pens.

As Cyrano writes letters to Roxanne, he falls deeply in love with her. However, he knows that he can never reveal his true feelings to her as he has willingly taken a back seat to his handsome, but dim-witted friend.

The story takes a dramatic turn when Christian is sent off to war, and Cyrano is forced to confront his true feelings for Roxanne. Will he finally confess his love to her? Or will he continue to suffer in silence, watching her from afar for the rest of his days?

The film explores themes of love, loyalty, and friendship. It also highlights the insecurities that many people face about their appearances and how it can affect their confidence in social settings. Cyrano's character is multi-faceted, offering humor, wit, and charm throughout the film, but also showcasing his heartaches and vulnerabilities.

Peter Dinklage's performance as Cyrano is outstanding. He brings depth to the character, portraying him as witty and charming yet vulnerable and insecure at times. Haley Bennett gives a great performance as Roxanne, showcasing her as sweet, smart, and genuine. Kelvin Harrison Jr. is also exceptional as Christian, delivering an excellent portrayal of a man who is physically attractive but struggles with expressing himself.

The cinematography is stunning, with beautiful shots of the French countryside and fitting music that elevates the film's overall atmosphere. Joe Wright's direction is excellent, making the story and characters come to life in a modern setting without losing any of the charm and wit of the original story.

In conclusion, Cyrano is a beautifully crafted film that pays homage to a classic French story while creating a modern retelling that will capture the hearts of audiences. With exceptional performances from the entire cast, stunning cinematography, and a delightful script, Cyrano is a must-see film that is both entertaining and thought-provoking.
