Movie Review: Cyrus

Finally had a chance to catch up with Jay Duplass’ Cyrus, which I heard nothing but good things about.  And I’m glad I did.

It is an odd little movie that stars John C. Reilly, Jonah Hill and Marisa Tomei.  They are all really good in their respective roles.  Reilly is a depressed loser who falls for Tomei’s wallflower character, who lives with her creepy son – Hill.  I guess the only head scratcher is why Tomei falls for Reilly.  He’s awesome, but she’s really hot.

The film is almost exactly what I expected.  A quirky drama with its fair share of laughs and uncomfortable moments – the sort of things that have defined the Duplass Brother ‘mumblecore’ films.

Definitely worth taking a look.
