We’ll done!

This was a very sad movie. Beautifully done! My 12yr old loved this movie but it was a bit violent for her.

A bit uneven, but has strong performances

Dinklage delights as Cyrano de Bergerac and Bennett crackles as clueless yet witty Roxanne. I was not aware this was a musical. I found most of the songs to be a bit flat and not that interesting, except for "Wherever I Fall" which was quite a strong song. The film feels uneven at times, but the strong performances hold up with the 125 year old material.
