Indulgent, Great acting, Funny, Clever, Ambitious

See it if You enjoy Jason O'Connell and his quirkiness. There is humor in this drama brought about by a talented and fun cast.

Don't see it if You want a straight version of Cyrano. They make some interesting choices that seemed to be played just for the laugh vs for the story.

Don't see it if You dislike anachronisms in adaptations. You dislike plays where supporting characters are largely caricature. Read more
