Low-budget indie filmmaking geniuses, Mark and Jay Duplass, bring the funny with their latest film, Cyrus — their first with big-name actors, studio backing and a seven-figure bankroll. Although they’ve moved on from handheld digital video and no-budget shortcuts, Brothers Duplass remain true to their mumblecore origins. Working from an outline rather than full script, Marisa Tomei, John C. Reilly and Jonah Hill are shockingly hilarious as they improvise many of their lines.
Cyrus screened at the 53rd San Francisco International Film Festival, which took place this year from April 22nd to May 6th. For more information about the festival, please visit their official website.
Cyrus will begin a theatrical run in the U.S. on June 18th. A full review will be made available upon its release.
