Some families just have trouble letting go.
Cyrus isn’t really a comedy, though I wouldn’t blame you if you have that impression before seeing the movie. Both Jonah Hill and John C. Reilly have been in a lot of comedies lately (though Reilly is fairly well-known for more serious movies like Magnolia and Boogie Nights), and the trailer doesn’t do much to dissuade that notion. It does have some parts that are quite funny, but it gets more serious as the movie goes on, and is quite touching and raw at times.
The story is about a divorced, lonely man (Reilly) who meets a seemingly perfect woman (Marisa Tomei). The only problem is that she has a live-in adult son Cyrus (Hill), and they’re co-dependent on each other to the degree that Cyrus instantly hates the new man who (in his mind) is going to take his mother away. His solution is to sabotage their relationship.
That sounds like the set-up for a broad comedy in the vein of Step-Brothers, but Cyrus sticks fairly close to its indie sensibilities. It’s filmed in an almost documentary-type manner, the situations never really get too over-the-top or absurd, and the relationships remain the focus of the movie, throughout. The issues of co-dependency and parents and adult children having a hard time letting go of each other is treated pretty seriously.
Cyrus was one of my most anticipated movies of 2010, and while I can’t say it was as great as I hoped it would be, I ended up being pleasantly surprised by the tone it struck. I say keep an open mind and check it out.
Not a false note
Is Cyrus a timeless classic that deserves a 10 rating? Does it rank among the movie classics? Not really. But is there anything it could have done better — acting, writing or production-wise? Not really.
The Duplass brothers have taken a very intimate, honest, personal story and really tailored a very nice little film around it — one that accentuates without intruding upon its many strengths.
Chief among these is the acting by the four principles. The movie is, in particular, suited to the inherently likable qualities of John Reilly. It’s (again) a role in which you find yourself wondering if he’s really just playing himself, but consign yourself to admitting in the end that he’s really *that* good. He imbues his character John’s reactions with just the right blend of pathos and humor — it’s a tightrope he’s particularly suited to walking as an actor and one that he makes look deceptively simple.
Jonah Hill is very well cast here too. Always a master of the impeccably timed sarcastic aside, you never know if he’s playing it straight or crooked and that’s custom-tailored for the titular role. This, however, is the first movie where I’ve really seen him ACTING without seeming to do a stand-up routine on the sly. He’s actually strongest when he’s silent — his face is a painfully vivid relief map of rage, cunning, shock, agony, and confusion as John gets too close to his first true love in ages, who also happens to be Cyrus’ mother (Tomei).
The negative comments I have heard I just couldn’t register about this film: Tomei and Keener were not wasted and actually turned in some of the meatier, rawer performance I’ve seen from them lately. The film has also gotten dinged for it’s digital photography and hand-held style, when this is the exact type of movie that is best suited to this medium: an intimate, personal, almost docu-style outing.
Because the acting is so strong and the subject matter so familiar to most people, Cyrus doesn’t seem canned or forced in any way. It is more drama than comedy, but if all dramas were half this well-made and authentic, we’d be in very good shape.
