Genre: Drama, Psychodrama

Tagline: Life is hard. Love is simple.

Plot: Set in the back woods and bar rooms of the South, CHRYSTAL not only transports you to this evocative place, but also plugs you into its pulse.

Sixteen years after Joe (Billy Bob Thornton) plunged the family car off the road with his beautiful wife Chrystal and their young son inside, Joe returns from prison seeking what was lost on that night. The thing Joe needs the most is the hardest to ask for — his own redemption. Writer/director Ray McKinnon co-stars brilliantly as Snake, Joe's nemesis, who is looking to settle an old score. Lisa Blount is breathtaking as Chrystal, trapped in a body racked with pain from the crash, her eyes serving as windows to another time and place in the sultry hills of the South.

With vivid images and outstanding performances, McKinnon's unvarnished realism embraces his characters in their fight for emotional survival—creating a world of painfully lyrical beauty, set to an amazing soundtrack which includes The Drive-By Truckers, Jay Farrar, and Tim Eriksen.
