Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 07/11/2013
"[A]n amusing booze-and-drug-fueled road trip, its travelers on a quest to experience the Holy Grail of highs."
New York Times - 07/11/2013
"[A] small, lovely road movie....Mr. Cera exudes the gawky bravado of an unformed man-child straining to act like a grown-up."
RogerEbert.com - 07/11/2013
3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he ending sneaks up on you with a surprising bit of emotional catharsis, thanks largely to a brave, complex performance from former child star Gaby Hoffmann..."
Rolling Stone - 07/11/2013
3 stars out of 4 -- "If there is such a thing as quiet rule-busting, Silva is a master of the craft....CRYSTAL FAIRY gives off fumes that deliver a indisputable high."
A.V. Club - 07/11/2013
"[Cera is] hilariously testy in one of his best roles..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 07/18/2013
"Chilean writer-director Sebastian Silva re-creates a youthful road trip with a head trip at the end in CRYSTAL FAIRY..."
Washington Post - 07/26/2013
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "In Chile, five travelers seek a chemical high, finding hidden parts of themselves in the process."
Total Film - 01/13/2014
3 stars out of 5 -- "Silva's curio works best as a free-wheeling character piece, splicing oddball comedy with discreet depths."

Product Description:

A guy whose life is an endless party is suddenly confronted with his adulthood under unexpected circumstances in this independent comedy. Jamie (Michael Cera) is a footloose American traveling through Chile who devotes his waking hours to getting wasted on whatever plant or powder crosses his path. Jamie and his friend Champa (Juan Andrés Silva) are on the road with Champa's brothers in tow (José Miguel Silva) and (Agustin Silva) when they decide to hit the desert of Atacama, which is home to a fabled variety of hallucinogenic cactus. En route, Jamie encounters Crystal Fairy (Gaby Hoffmann), a fellow American fascinated with New Age philosophies and neo-hippie lifestyles. Jamie impulsively asks Crystal to join him for the trip to Atacama, but it doesn't take long for her to get on his nerves, and the new insights he experiences while tripping on the cactus products only help so much. Writer and director Sebastián Silva (whose siblings play Champa and his brothers) based CRYSTAL FAIRY (aka CRYSTAL FAIRY AND THE MAGIC CACTUS) on events from his own reckless youth; the film received its North American premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
