Cyrano de Bergerac update Roxanne on dual format in November

7 October 2016

Eureka Entertainment are to release Roxanne, the enchanting 80s classic update of Cyrano de Bergerac starring Steve Martin and Daryl Hannah, on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK in a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 21 November 2016 at the RRP of £17.99.

Steve Martin delivers a magnificent performance as an engaging small town fire chief who has only one tiny flaw – his astonishingly long nose. Although he considers it no laughing matter, the hilarity never stops as C.D. Bales (Martin) contends with his bumbling crew of firemen, and his secret love for gorgeous astronomy student Roxanne (Daryl Hannah).

Unfortunately, she is attracted to fireman Chris (Rick Rossovich), who's tall on looks and short on conversation. And when C.D. agrees to coach the dumbstruck Chris in his pursuit of the fair maiden, this ticklish triangle dissolves into a hilarious series of rib-tickling romantic misadventures. Written by Martin as an update to Cyrano de Bergerac, and directed by Fred Schepisi, this remains an enchanting classic.

This will be be the film's first UK dual format release, courtesy of Eureka Classics.
