Musical: Unable to tell a high society woman how he feels about her, a French nobleman ends up helping the man she's smitten with woo her through his words.

It's the 1600s and Cyrano de Bergerac (PETER DINKLAGE) is a French nobleman serving in the King's army who's a renowned duelist and poetic wordsmith. Despite his many talents, his diminutive size results in him believing he's not worthy of the potential affections of his longtime friend, Roxanne (HALEY BENNETT).

Yet, knowing that Count De Guiche (BEN MENDELSOHN) is interested in her, and after confessing his true feelings about her to his fellow soldier and friend, Le Bret (BASHIR SALAHUDDIN), Cyrano has his hopes raised upon learning that Roxanne wants to meet him privately the following day.

But that's to inform Cyrano of her secret love, newly arrived soldier Christian de Neuvillette (KELVIN HARRISON JR.). Cyrano is crushed, but doesn't let on, and ever loyal to Roxanne, he promises to befriend Christian, protect him from harm, and have him write to her. The only problem is the young man has no such skills, resulting in Cyrano penning the love letters, all of which cause Roxanne to fall ever more in love with Christian.

As that complicated arrangement and ruse continue, all involved must contend with De Guiche becoming increasingly impatient regarding his romantic overtures toward Roxanne, all of which puts everyone at risk.

Fans of musicals and anyone in the cast might be interested in it.
For some strong violence, thematic and suggestive material, and brief language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
