After being dumped by his girlfriend, a man stuck in a deadend life decides to audition for a small role in a local community theatre's production of Cyrano de Bergerac. Despite having no experience as an actor, he lands the lead role, which wreaks havoc upon his life. Written by
You're on the stage, and there we're all Cyrano, all loving with no hope of true love in return; all Roxanne, loving an illusion of love; all Christian, loving with words that are not our own; all imperfect. Parading or imperfections, in spite of our fears, with one thought in mind: to play true to the end. To risk all, and to be left with only that which is most dear.

I really liked and enjoyed this movie - it's one of those very good low key movies like "Noel". Marcus Thomas has been a favorite of mine since "Cowboy Up" (a film that shows off his range a lot better than this), John Corbett is a helluva character actor, and Amy Smart was excellent. Patty Duke was absolutely great - I could go on and on - I really enjoyed Sean Astin, Claire Higgins, and Allan Corduner. I haven't seen too many critics appreciate this film - basically, they all say "it's all been done before". Well, that may be true, but seeing somebody else do what's been done can be entertaining also. I always gage a film by how much I like and pull for the characters - this one hooked me pretty quick.
