As a captain within the French guard in the late 1800s, Cyrano (Peter Dinklage) is an accomplished swordsman who is respected by his regiment and a well-known poet. During his time outside of the military, this leader of men is a faithful companion to his friend of many years, Roxanne (Haley Bennett). Due to his more diminutive stature, he is considered a friend of the statuesque woman. He merely serves her with no reservation, but secretly loves her with all of his being. Men pursue her beauty throughout the city, including the wealthy and influential Comte De Guiche (Ben Mendelsohn). Yet, she only has eyes for Christian de Neuvillette (Kelvin Harrison Jr.), a soldier who has recently joined the guard within Cyrano’s unit. As she fends off the advances of De Guiche, Roxanne asks her small friend to befriend this young soldier and encourage Christian to write to her. This request is unbearable for Cyrano to consider until he realises that this is his opportunity to express his love to the woman who captivates his every thought. Since Christian has no mastery of the written word, the two men devise a plan where one writes the letters and the other signs them while gaining the heart of Roxanne.
