“Truth: I’m more than my nose. Truth: no one believes that. Truth: I don’t believe that.”
An original retelling of the French Classic by Edmond Rostand, this romantic comedy follows Cyrano, a female soldier, in a tale of unrequited love.
As she vies for the beautiful Roxane, Cyrano wrestles with self-doubt, body-shaming, and toxic masculinity in a world of ‘all’s fair in love and war,’ armed with sword-like quips, fair friends, and more than a fair amount of pastries.
