Opening this weekend, in limited release, is Cyrus. Written and directed by Jay Duplass & Mark Duplass (The Puffy Chair, Baghead), the movie stars John C. Reilly, Jonah Hill, Catherine Keener and Marisa Tomei. While the Duplass brothers have made a number of indie films, this is their first studio movie. While you might think getting financing from Fox Searchlight might somehow change who they are and what kinds of movies they make, they brought all their indie tricks along for the ride. The way they did that was to film the movie in order, and they also did a ton of improv on set. In fact, while they (of course) got takes that stuck to the script, they did take after take of improv to try and make everything seem real. What they ended up with was a original story that blends humor & heartbreak. Definitely recommended.
