Hollywood Debut for Peaceful Pill Handbook

An unlikely cameo perhaps, but given the topic of Youth In Oregon, not really.

New Hollywood feature film – Youth in Oregon – stars Frank Langella as a 79-year-old curmudgeon who makes arrangements to be euthanized in Oregon, but his family refuses to accept his decision.

Crudup plays the son-in-law who reluctantly volunteers to drive Langella’s character and his wine-loving wife 3,000 miles to Oregon — and discovers that convincing his father-in-law to keep living when he’s ready to check out is no simple task.

“Overall, this beautiful film tackles one of humanity’s most universal dilemmas, told through the lens of an estranged, intimacy-parched family that has to bear the burden of a patriarch’s decision to leave them all behind,”

the Director Joel David Moore said.

“As filmmakers, we want to leave you thinking about your own mortality, and what compromises you may make moving into you or your parents’ later years.”

During production, Exit was contacted by the film’s producers requesting permission for product placement of The Peaceful Pill Handbook.

A confidentiality agreement ensued so ‘mum’ was the word, until now. Enjoy.

General release in February 2017.
