About the film:

World Premiere at the 2021 Telluride Film Festival. A man ahead of his time, Cyrano de Bergerac 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, Cyrano has yet to declare his feelings for her — and Roxanne has fallen in love, at first sight, with Christian.

Joe Wright’s Cyrano received a nomination for Best Costume Design at the 94th Academy Awards for his frequent collaborator, two-time Academy Award-winner Jacqueline Durran, and Massimo Cantini Parrini, who was nominated for the first time last year.

About the filmmaker:

British director Joe Wright earned recognition for his creative adaptations of beloved literary works. Before crafting his award-winning debut feature Pride & Prejudice, he directed the short films Crocodile Snap and The End, and acclaimed series like Nature Boy and the 2003 BAFTA-winning Charles II: The Power & the Passion. His features include romantic dramas like the stylized Anna Karenina and Venice prize-winner Atonement, the action thriller Hanna, the 2015 Peter Pan origin story Pan, and the Winston Churchill WWII drama Darkest Hour.

Cyrano de Bergerac is a new musical version of Edmond Rostand’s classic 19th century poetic drama, with a screenplay adapted by Erica Schmidt from her own innovative stage musical.
