Storyline

Cyrus Nollen is a teenage computer genius and legendary joker with a "nose for trouble" at Bergerac High. He's smart, sensitive, funny, and madly in love with his friend Roxy, but painfully shy because of his large nose. Unfortunately Roxy tells Cyrus that she's interested in the new kid in Cyrus' Biology class, Chris Newville. Chris is nervous about speaking to Roxy, so Cyrus sends a few charming witty texts to get him started. But Cyrus gets more and more involved, living vicariously through Chris, revealing in this chance to tell Roxy how he feels without fear of rejection. Things spiral out of control, and Cyrus has to keep the illusion alive by taking over all of Chris's social networking, to make him seem smarter and deeper than he is. In no time at all, Roxy is head over heels with someone who technically doesn't exist, and the two have to scramble to keep from getting caught. Cyrus Nollen is Cyrano de Bergerac for the cyber age, a fast, fun adaptation of a classic is the vein ... Written by Jesse Lipscombe

User Reviews

 
gentle fun
4 November 2018 | by CedericSee all my reviews

There is almost nothing that makes this film stand out, that makes it one to recommend, that distinguishes it from dozens of other movies set in high school. It even ticks all the boxes, captures all the tropes, includes all the characters you expect to see and has them act just as you'd expect. Damningly it's predictable.

The acting doesn't astound, the soundtrack forgettable, the conversations rarely quotable, the set design mundane.

So go in with low expectations and.. let yourself be charmed. Enjoy a simple film, put together well, featuring likeable people. There are fun elements, the plot isn't entirely linear and there's certainly romance.

For all that it fails to wow the audience, this film never lets them down. Solid entertainment and worth your time.
