1987
Rating:
PG

Roxanne is a modern adaptation telling of the successful 1897 play Cyrano de Bergerac. Set in a small Pacific Northwestern town, the film follows C.D. Bales who is a charismatic, acrobatic, and skilled Fire Chief, poet, and all around handyman. But there is one big thing different about C.D. He has a gigantic nose, a nose that he is violently sensitive about. It just so happens that C.D. has fallen crazy in love with Roxanne Kowalski, a beautiful young astronomer. The only problem is, Roxanne is head over heals for Chris, a hunky but dim0witted fireman that just moved into town. Thinking he has no chance to be with Roxanne because of his nose, C.D. helps Chris woo her off her feet by writing her a love letter as if it was from himself. Roxanne falls for it and is convinced she loves Chris. C.D. continues writing letters to Roxanne from his heart, but signs them with Chris's name. It isn't until by chance that Roxanne realizes it was C.D. all along that had been writing the love letters.
