Krystalcenters 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.”

Nick Robinson, who’s receiving his share of accolades for the teen drama Love, Simon, will next be seen in the comedy-drama Krystal. Directed by William H. Macy, the narrative centers on Taylor Ogburn (Robinson), an 18-year-old who falls in love with an ex-stripper (Rosario Dawson). Probably unaware of boundaries, Taylor decides to attend AA meetings (he’s not an alcoholic) in order to bond with the woman of his dreams.
Co-starring Felicity Huffman, Tip “T.I.” Harris, and The Flash star Grunt Gustin, the feature marks Macy’s third feature directing effort (his previous flicks are The Layover, released last year, and 2014’s Rudderless). The trailer has its memorable moments and showcases Robinson’s comedic skills, and hopefully Dawson and Robinson’s chemistry will lead the way. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!

The Flash returns with new episodes Tuesday April 10 at 8/7c on The CW.
Now in its fourth season, The Flash is one of The CW’s most popular shows. Its loyal fans tune in each week, and they’re also very passionate on social media. The show’s star, Grant Gustin, is happy to see so much fan reaction, because he says that while they’re filming each episode, the cast and crew are pretty much sequestered from the rest of the world!
