Movie Quote of the Month

May 2022

“Yet, when Cyrano does appear, he takes the divinely proportioned form of James McAvoy, clad in tight black jeans and form-fitting puffer jacket, with nothing but a smattering of beard adorning his famous face.  If that’s agony, sign me up for a world of pain.”

Alexandra Schwartz reviewing the play “Cyrano de Bergerac” in the April 25 & May 2, 2022 The New Yorker
