A magnetic soldier full of swagger and brilliant poet, Cyrano de Bergerac (James McAvoy) is in love with his beautiful, intelligent cousin Roxane without her knowing. His one curse in his life, he feels, is his large nose, and although it may have been a forming influence in his razor-sharp wit, he believes that Roxane will reject him. When the handsome but unpoetic Christian falls for the beautiful Roxane, he asks Cyrano to help him win her heart.
