The holiday season brings an exciting musical romantic drama to Prime Video.
On Wednesday, November 23, the streaming service will add Cyrano to its available content. The movie is directed by Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice) from a screenplay written by veteran theater artist 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 also based on Schmidt’s 2018 stage musical of the same name, which also featured 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.
