Don't be fooled by the Farelly brothers comedy picture on the case..
on 5 March 2011
Although billed as a comedy and wrapped in a comedic sheen of one liners, Cyrus is weighted heavily towards the dramatic. There's nothing intrinsically funny about the situation, and it's to the directors credit that they didn't try to force too much comedy out of the film as it would probably have failed miserably. Much of the dialogue is improvised which probably helped to keep the film true to it's dark centre. All three of the leads are excellent. Very enjoyable, not too long and glad I watched it.
