Movie Review: Cyrus

Finally had a chance to catch up with Jay Duplass’ Cyrushttp://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=citydoglax&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B0037QGRV0&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr, 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.
