Roll out the red carpet and join us for an evening of laughs and big guests as director, star, and past Cinequest Maverick Award recipient William H. Macy (Shameless, Fargo) returns to Cinequest to present his highly anticipated new comedy, Krystal.

Tyler Ogburn (Nick Robinson, Everything, Everything, Jurassic World) has had a very sheltered upbringing, mostly due to a heart condition that deters him from living the normal life of going to college, playing sports, or pursuing love. But, that all changes when he meets Krystal, played by past Cinequest Maverick Award recipient Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Kids, He Got Game). Krystal is a stripper and an alcoholic with a son, Bobby (Jacob Latimore), who is confined to a wheelchair.In order to become closer to Krystal, Campbell joins her Alcoholics Anonymous group, thus, starting a very unlikely love affair.

It’s always exciting when one of our favorite guests returns, and even more thrilling when that guest returns with a spectacular new film. And, Krystal is certainly one that will have you laughing, emotionally riveted, and inspired through its masterful storytelling. Add a cast that includes Kathy Bates (Misery), William Fichtner (Crash), Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives), Grant Gustin (The Flash), Rick Fox (Oz), and William H. Macy, and you have an absolute winner of a movie experience!
