Cyrus [Blu-ray] [Region B]
Region B Europe/Australia (
Directed by mumblecore stalwarts Jay and Mark Duplass, CYRUS stars John C. Reilly as John, a middle-aged lonely divorced guy who, as the film opens, gets dragged to a party by his remarried ex-wife (Catherine Keener) -- who remains his best friend. After a few clumsy, drunken passes at a variety of women, John encounters Molly (Marisa Tomei), an attractive single-mom who finds John's social awkwardness appealing. They hit it off, and quickly begin a tender new relationship. Problems soon arise in the form of Cyrus (Jonah Hill), Molly's twentysomething son, who has an off-puttingly close relationship to his mom. Soon the jealous Cyrus sets about trying to break them up, and John must figure out how to deal with this unhinged and unexpected rival.
John, C. Reilly, Jonah Hill, Marisa Tomei, Catherine Keener, Matt Walsh
"A comedy of discomfort that walks a wonderful line between reality-based emotional honesty and engaging humor....Satisfying and substantial."
Los Angeles Times
"It's an edgy, engrossing comedy with an art-house sensibility and mainstream appeal. Amid the laughs, emotional truths loom large for each of its rather odd characters."
"Mr. Reilly and the filmmakers get a lot of mileage out of the actor's talent for making genially hapless characters likable."
New York Times
"[A] dulcetly crazy, certifiably hilarious and eerily mysterious little comedy written and directed by the Duplass brothers..."
Wall Street Journal
"If you want to see a vital example of how the indie spirit can interface with Hollywood, check out the spiky and surprising CYRUS." -- Grade: A-
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Hill knocks the role out of the park, nailing every nuance, comic, tender and scary....Original and crazily inventive..."
3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he Duplasses are as generous with their payoff as they are canny about building up suspense....CYRUS is powered by a deep vein of humanism..."
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Marisa Tomei plays warm and friendly as well as anyone, and those qualities are essential to CYRUS..."
"John C. Reilly takes the popular overgrown adolescent archetype and adds layers of despair, anger, and aching longing."
4 stars out of 5 -- "Treading a fine line between tragi-comedy and indie quirk, the cast also divine humanity from the humour -- Reilly essays expertly rumpled befuddlement..."
4 stars out of 5 -- "There are hilarious scenes....This remains intense, creepy and psychologically credible."
