REVIEWER: Jesse timbs
An estranged father and son head across country to deliver four old rolls of Kodachrome film to the last lab in the world that can develop them before it shuts down for good.
What can I say about Kodachrome other than I loved it. It brings back memories of the magic and excitement of taking photos on film before everything was digital and instant.
Back in the days when you actually had to get together to show off your holiday photos or the embarrassment of seeing that dreaded blue baby album every time you brought someone new home to meet your parents.
Matt (Jason Sudeikis) is a struggling music executive who's world is turned upside down when his estranged father's nurse Zooey (Elizabeth Olsen) unexpectedly turns up in his office. Matt's father Ben (Ed Harris), a world famous photographer, is facing terminal cancer and his dying wish is for Matt to join him on a road trip from New York to Kansas to process his last rolls of Kodachrome film.
Kodachrome is a brilliantly acted movie with a standout performance from Ed Harris who is fantastic. His character is rude and obnoxious but you fall in love with him anyway. Another standout aspect of Kodachrome was the amazing soundtrack.
Overall Kodachrome is a brilliant movie that everyone will enjoy and is well worth a watch.
Kodachrome is a great film all round - top story, terrific cast (with Ed Harris being a stand out), and a superb soundtrack.
