EXIT MUSIC is a rare invitation into the world of a young artist dying of cystic fibrosis as he and his father navigate the ominous, sacred, and unmapped journey at the end of life. Equal parts comedy and darkness, the film explores the last year, last breath, and final creative act of Ethan Rice as he awaits the inevitable.
“Exit Music” covers the spectrum with grace, good humor and no emotional filter: It’s an unabashed tear-jerker that earns its saltwater through candor rather than undue manipulation.—Guy Lodge, Variety
