Editors Note
Note Starring Billy Bob Thornton, CHRYSTAL is a touching tale of a man coming to terms with a life left in tatters. After 16 years spent behind bars, Joe (Thornton) returns to the wife he crippled in a car accident that proved fatal for their young son. Desperate to make amends and start afresh, Joe's wife, Chrystal (Lisa Blount), has a hard time accepting his presence back in her life. Director Ray McKinnon effortlessly guides his film through a series of ups and downs for Joe and Chrystal, creating a satisfying portrait of a man struggling to recapture what he once had. McKinnon also appears in the movie, in an impressive cast which also includes a turn from famed American character actor Harry Dean Stanton.

ReviewSource Charlotte Observer
Review One of those movies that sticks to your mind like a briar to wool slacks. It has no revelations, no high drama, no heartbreaking tragedy. What it does have is bone-deep honesty, and that's enough for once.

ReviewSource LA Weekly
Review McKinnon's direction is nothing if not atmospheric -- his best scenes unfold with a pungent languor that suggests the power of the backwoods to turn hours into days and days into years. If only the sum total were a movie more "In the Bedroom" than it is everything-but-the-kitchen-sink.
