A Film by Sebastián Silva

Starring Michael Cera, Gaby Hoffmann and Juan Andrés Silva

In this freewheeling comedy from the director of The Maid, Michael Cera (Arrested Development, Superbad) stars as Jamie, a shaggy, boorish young American traveling through Chile. While searching for a rare hallucinogen-the famed San Pedro cactus-with a trio of Chilean brothers, Jamie invites a mysterious hippie (Gaby Hoffmann) along for the ride, but her free-spirited personality quickly clashes with his self-absorption. When they head for the beach, Jamie’s big trip starts taking surprising turns. (c) IFC Films

"It is a shaggy dog road movie, and a drug-hazy one at that, but beneath the silliness and character-based gags, Crystal Fairy is, I feel, an unusually insightful look at self-imposed false identities and group dynamics."

--Jordan Hoffman, Film.com

 

"The film is often beautiful and appealingly light. Every clear-eyed insight into why pushy people insist on pushing is matched by loose ensemble humor and lyric reveries."

--Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice

Won the Directing Award for World Cinema at the Sundance Film Festival
