Prepare to have your mind bent and uncover a tale of hedonistic, ego-clashing college students on the road to self-discovery… with the help of the fabled San Pedro cactus brew.
Starring Michael Cera (Juno, This is The End, Superbad) and Gaby Hoffmann (13, Field of Dreams) as you’ve never seen them before, in a take on the classic road trip movie… with a twist. Directed by Sebastian Silva (The Maid, Magic Magic) in his signature maverick style, CRYSTAL FAIRY reminds us of what we can discover about ourselves when we stop looking. Described as ‘culminating in a profound audience experience’ (-Sundance Guide, 2013), CRYSTAL FAIRY features music from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes , Basement Jaxx and Manu Chao.
Jamie (Michael Cera) is a boorish, insensitive college student travelling in Chile who leaves a path of chaos wherever he goes. He and his friends are planning on taking a road trip north to experience a legendary shamanistic hallucinogen called the San Pedro cactus. In a fit of drunkenness at a wild party, Jamie invites an eccentric woman – a radical spirit named Crystal Fairy (Hoffmann) – to come along. What is meant to be a devil-may-care journey becomes a battle of wills as Jamie finds himself locking horns with his new travelling companion. But on a remote, pristine beach at the edge of the desert, the magic brew is finally imbibed, and the true adventure begins.
Hilarious, edgy and wild, CRYSTAL FAIRY is available to download January 24th. The DVD is released on the 27th and in cinemas from the 17th.
