Krystal Light (Movie Thoughts: Krystal)

kryThey say that after a straight actor plays gay on screen, he will always have his devoted gay fans supporting his films – for better or for worse.  After ‘Love Simon,’ Nick Robinson is obviously in that category, and I was actually looking forward to seeing ‘Krystal,’ a films tarring him and Rosario Dawson, and is directed by the actor William H Macy. And Robinson is good here, as well as Dawson. But I have to say, this film is a hot mess. Robinson’s character, Taylor suffers from paroxysmal atrial tachycardia (PAT) which is a heart condition that affects his physically if he gets excited. So what happens when he falls in love, right? Cute premise but this film is bogged down by too many things going on, and none of them, except the charming cast, work.
