Actor Joel David Moore is probably best known for his roles in "Avatar," "Dodgeball," and TV's "Bones." But lately, he's been focusing his attention behind the camera.
Moore delivers his second feature as a director with the dysfunctional-family dramedy "Youth in Oregon," starring Frank Langella as a cranky elderly man who, on his 80th birthday, announces to his wife and adult children that he's decided to travel back to Oregon so he can end his life using the state's assisted suicide law.
The film also stars Billy Crudup as Langella's even-tempered son-in-law, who finds himself volunteering to drive him across the country in what has to be the weirdest and saddest road trip ever.
Written by Andrew Eisen, the movie also stars Christina Applegate, Josh Lucas, Nicola Peltz, Alex Shaffer, and Mary Kay Place.
"Youth in Oregon" is coming to theaters and VOD/Digital on February 3rd. Watch the trailer, above.
When 79-year-old curmudgeon RAYMOND (Frank Langella) makes arrangements to be euthanized in Oregon, his family refuses to accept his decision.But when another family emergency arises, Raymond's daughter KATE (Christina Applegate) turns to her husband BRIAN (Billy Crudup) for a little help. So Brian reluctantly volunteers to drive the cantankerous Raymond and his wine-loving wife ESTELLE (Mary Kay Place) three-thousand miles to Oregon. Determined to change the old man's mind before they reach the Beaver State, it becomes quickly apparent to Brian that convincing your father-in-law to keep living when he's ready to check out is no simple task.
