“Kodachrome” is an upcoming drama from director Mark Raso and starring Jason Sudeikis, Ed Harris, and Elizabeth Olsen. The movie is based on a New York Times article written by A.G. Sulzberger in 2010 called “For Kodachrome Fans, Road Ends at Photo Lab in Kansas”. It tells the story of a dying old photographer who is reunited with his son and they go on a road trip to the only laboratory left in the country that can develop his old Kodachrome camera film.
Struggling A&R executive Matt (Jason Sudeikis) finds his world turned upside down when his estranged father’s nurse (Elizabeth Olsen) shows up unexpectedly in his office. Matt’s father, a famed bad-boy photojournalist (Ed Harris), 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 before the sole remaining lab closes and those captured moments are gone forever. Kodachrome tells the story of three damaged people coming to terms with themselves, each other, and a world swiftly changing from analog to digital.
“Kodachrome” arrives globally on April 20th.
