Life is hard. Love is simple.
Sixteen years after joe plunged the family car off the road with his wife chrystal and their young son inside, joe returns from prison seeking what was lost on that night. The thing he needs most is the hardest to ask for - his own redemption.

"Masterful...Lisa Blount is luminous...  Atlanta Journal Constitution
"Chrystal is a high heaping of brilliant storytelling.  Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter

Editor's 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.

Professional Reviews

Charlotte Observer 7 of 10
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. - Lawrence Toppman

LA Weekly 7 of 10
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. - Scott Foundas
