Sunday Best: ‘Cyrano’ promises to be a lovely, fashion-filled musical

Need a little imagination on what is surely a rainy day? Here is a photo of “Cyrano”, the new film musical hitting theaters next month with Peter Dinklage as the brilliant writer Cyrano de Bergerac and Haley Bennett (pictured) as the woman he loves from afar, Roxanne. I haven’t seen the film, but it promises to be, at least, beautiful to look at: note how, in this photo, Roxanne’s dress shares a pale yellow hue with the many pages of handwritten paper. “Cyrano” is directed by Joe Wright, whose films often feature beautiful clothes (“Atonement”, “Anna Karenina”); the costumes here are designed by Massimo Cantini Parrini (nominated for an Oscar last year for “Pinocchio.”)
