Earano: Oscar Winner Luke Matheny Turns “Cyrano de Bergerac” on Its Ear

Over the years, Edmond Rostand’s 1897 play, Cyrano de Bergerac, has had more than its share of reinventions. A favorite of recent years arrived in the form of the short film Earano (2006), a charming and hilarious film starring and directed by the 2011 Academy Award winner Luke Matheny, in which our lead hero has not a giant proboscis, but rather two giant ears. He longs for a beautiful librarian, but she only has eyes for the hunky Ukrainian janitor. The style of the film is reminiscent of David Lynch, but this being Cyrano (or rather, in this case, Earano), it’s also quite romantic.
