John C. Reilly & Marisa Tomei Interviews CYRUS

Dramedies about love triangles are somewhat commonplace. Dramedies about an unconventional love triangle with stalker-like behavior attached to one of the three characters is much more rare. That smaller sub-genre becomes almost non-existent when the perpetrator is also the son of one of the other two involved. Cyrus, which begins a national rollout today in New York and Los Angeles, pulls it off, due in large part to its stars: John C. Reilly, Marisa Tomei and Jonah Hill. The latest film from writers/co-directors Jay and Mark Duplass (The Puffy Chair and Baghead) follows John (Reilly), a man in dire straits whose life turns around when he meets his dream woman Molly (Tomei) at a party. Her son Cyrus (Jonah Hill) stains the picture with a severe failure to launch syndrome, compounded by Oedipal overtones.
