Crystal Fairy

Crystal Fairy

A film by Sebastián Silva
Starring Michael Cera, Gaby Hoffmann, Agustín Silva

In this freewheeling comedy from the director of The Maid, Michael Cera stars as a shaggy, boorish young American traveling through Chile searching for a rare hallucinogen.

Jamie (Cera) is a boorish, insensitive American twentysomething traveling in Chile, who somehow manages to create chaos at every turn. 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 traveling companion. But on a remote, pristine beach at the edge of the desert, the magic brew is finally imbibed, and the true adventure begins.

Crystal Fairy is an acid trip where the frequent bonhomie is doused by sobering introspection. —Jeremy Kay, The Guardian
