Starring: Peter Dinklage, Haley Bennett, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Bashir Salahuddin, Ben Mendelsohn
Musical drama directed by Joe Wright and based on the 1897 Edmond Rostand play Cyrano de Bergerac. Cyrano (2021) centers on the love triangle between French Army officer, Cyrano (Dinklage), a beautiful woman, Roxanne (Bennett), and handsome new cadet, Christian (Harrison Jr.). Cyrano is deeply in love with Roxanne, but because of his physical appearance, assumes she would never love him back. So when she confides in him that she is in love with Christian, Cyrano, an accomplished wordsmith, helps Christian woo her by writing letters for him to send to her.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Cyrano: Pleasure to meet you. Cyrano de Bergerac.
Man: You’re a freak. Freak.
Roxanne: [to Cyrano] My dearest friend, I’d be very angry with you if you died.
Cyrano: My sole purpose on this earth is to love Roxanne.
Le Bret: Does she know?
Cyrano: The world will never accept someone like me and a tall beautiful woman.
Roxanne’s Mother: We have no money. A clever marriage is your only option.
Roxanne: I won’t be rescued. I’m not in distress.
Roxanne: Love. Does that mean nothing to you?
Roxanne’s Mother: Children need love. Adults need money.
Roxanne: I have a confession to make. I am madly in love.
Cyrano: Perhaps he feels the same.
Roxanne: But I’ve never actually spoken to him.
Cyrano: Of your love?
Roxanne: I think.
Roxanne: He is Christian. Christian de Neuvillette. He’s a new recruit in your regiment.
Cyrano: Of course he is.
Christian: A woman like Roxanne wants wit, romance, poetry. I don’t know how to speak romantically.
Cyrano: I am a poet. My words upon your lips. I will make you romantic. Will you make me handsome?
Christian: She loves me!
Roxanne: Speak to me like you do in your letters.
Christian: You are a beautiful flower.
Roxanne: I am not a flower! I need more.
Christian: You’re in love with her.
Cyrano: My fate is to love her from afar.
Christian: We must let her decide our fate. She must have the choice.
