KRYSTAL is a comedic drama about a young man who has never had a drink in his life. Upon meeting the woman of his dreams - an ex-hooker-stripper-junkie-alcoholic - he pretends to be in AA to try and woo her. In order to have even a hint of a chance, he must face his own demons and learn what it means to live without fear in order to finally become a man.
Nick Robinson's acting in "Boardwalk Empire" and his ability to handle a blockbuster film like "Jurassic World" impressed William H. Macy so much that he cast him after finally meeting him. See more »

I mean... It's William H. Macy. There were plenty of good moments...
I see the negative reviews. I understand them. I even identify with them. BUT, this is a film in true WHM style. It's meant to push the boundaries, believability, and also meant to be chock full of comedic irony. I enjoyed this movie though I do think Rosario Dawson's character could have been developed a little better. The "ex-stripper/hooker/junkie" bit was a tad too over the top. Nick Robinson's "Taylor" played the part of Rick Fox's "Bo" a bit more comfortably than a supposed 18 year old sheltered suburban boy should. If you're familiar with Macy's work then you should like and possibly enjoy this film. There are some great "lol" moments that make it worth the 90 minutes.
