The Paramount+ schedule for February 20-26 features Cyrano, among other interesting additions.
On Monday, February 20, the streaming service (sign-up for Paramount+ here) will add Cyrano to its available content. Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice) directed the movie from a screenplay written by author and Peter Dinklage’s wife, Erica Schmidt. The film stars Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Haley Bennett (The Devil All The Time), Kelvin Harrison Jr. (The High Note), as well as Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline), and Bashir Salahuddin (A Simple Favor).
“Award-winning director Joe Wright envelops moviegoers in a symphony of emotions with music, romance, and beauty in Cyrano, re-imagining the timeless tale of a heartbreaking love triangle,” reads the official synopsis. “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.”
Cyrano is based on Schmidt’s 2018 stage musical of the same name, also featuring Dinklage and Bennett in the leading roles. The film adaptation features songs from The Nationals’ Aaron and Bryce Dessner, with lyrics from Matt Berninger and Carin Besser.
