Nick Robinson and William H. Macy Discuss 'Krystal' in Charlottesville

This past weekend, the Virginia Film Festival celebrated its 30th anniversary in Charlottesville, with several prestige-level feature films, including the coming-of-age drama Call Me by Your Name and the coming-of-age comedy Krystal.

Krystal was screened on Friday evening, followed by a panel discussion with actor-director William H. Macy, the film's lead actor Nick Robinson, and producer Rachel Winter.

Mitch Levine, founder and director of The Film Festival Group, moderated the panel.

According to the Virginia Film Festival's program notes,
Nick Robinson Krystal
Nick Robinson
Tyler Ogburn lives a sheltered life due to a heart condition that prevents him from going to college, playing sports, or pursuing love. That is until enticing ex-stripper and former heroin addict Krystal comes into his life, and he starts attending her Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in order to spend time with her. Also complicating Ogburn’s efforts to pursue Krystal is her son, Bobby, who is confined to a wheelchair and serves as the street-smart voice of reason for the dysfunctional family. This is the third feature from director-actor William H. Macy (Fargo, Shameless).

The cast of Krystal also includes Rosario Dawson, Kathy Bates, Grant Gustin, William Fichtner, and Felicity Huffman.

The video above was recorded at the Paramount Theater in downtown Charlottesville, Virginia, on Friday evening, November 10, 2017.
