Krystal centers on a wide-eyed 18-year-old (Love Simon’s Nick Robinson) who falls in love with an ex-prostitute (Rosario Dawson) and is determined to make her his own. William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman, married for over 20 years, collaborate once again on this labor of love project (Macy, who also directs the flick, had this project in mind even before directing Rudderless and The Layover).
“Bill and I started working together when I was 22 I think,” said Huffman. “So we have a long history. We have a long shorthand. We’ve fallen into a lot of the pitfalls. We’ve made mistakes with each other. We’ve had fights. And now we’re at a place where it’s very easy. It’s very comfortable. It’s joyous.”
