What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Crystal Fairy is an offbeat dramedy about men and women whose weaknesses are revealed, often harshly, during a camping trip laced with mescaline. It's a fascinating -- albeit mature -- study of human behavior and group dynamics. Expect nudity (full frontal for women, back view for the men), some swearing ("s--t," "a--hole," etc.) and plenty of scenes with characters indulging in all sorts of substances, including cocaine. Indie fave Michael Cera stars.

  • Families can talk about what type of movie Crystal Fairy is. Is it a road film, or some other offshoot? Does the film twist that subgenre into something else entirely?

  • How does the movie depict substance use/abuse? Is it glamorized? Are there realistic consequences?

  • Why do you think Jamie and Crystal Fairy collide? Are they very different, or perhaps too much alike in ways they don't want to be?

  • Is Jamie a bully? If yes, why? If not, why not? Does he exemplify a type of tourist who repels locals?
