Cyrus

Rated R 92 min. 2010



Cyrus is an engaging, problematic and occasionally suspenseful love-triangle comedy about a down-and-out divorcé (John C. Reilly), the woman he falls for (Marisa Tomei) and that woman's 21-year-old son (Jonah Hill). The first Hollywood film from Jay and Mark Duplass (Puffy Chair, Baghead) is fascinating if only because of context: watching Hollywood actors do their thing in something that looks like it might be a student film. The writer-directors also eke some queasy humor out of the mother-son relationship and get a strong, unpredictable performance from Hill. But most of what's to appreciate about Cyrus comes more from its curiosities than its underdeveloped ideas.
