Watch the Trailer for <i>Crystal Fairy</i>, Starring Michael Cera

You’ve got to give the guy credit, Michael Cera has taken several projects recently in the pursuit of shedding the awkward character that most audiences associate with his name. Now with films like Magic Magic and now Crystal Fairy, it appears he’s going after characters and stories that are a bit more dimensional.

In Sebastian Silva’s Crystal Fairy, Cera plays Jaime, an “ugly American tourist” who ventures out on a trip to a Chilean desert to trip on a magical cactus. But when an uninvited guest tags along, the vacation is thrown a little off course. Gaby Hoffmann plays the free-spirited hippie follower who seems in desperate need of new pals.

Sundance Selects opens the film July 12. Check out the first official trailer above.
