I recently got a chance to see the 2021 movie Cyrano, a new cinematic adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s 1897 play Cyrano de Bergerac. The movie features Peter Dinklage in the title role. It is directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice, Hanna, etc.) and adapted by Dinklage’s wife Erika Schmidt (from her stage adaptation).
As a Cyrano super-fan, I try to see as many stage productions and movie versions as I can. well, I have some thoughts, both positive and negative about this latest musical treatment of the great play.
