Kodachrome is a tale of three people, a renowned photographer who only shoots analogue and was never a very good father, his estranged son who is forced to drive his ailing father across America to get some recently discovered rolls of film to the last certified place that will develop them, before it closes for good, and the always enticing Elizabeth Olsen who plays the father’s nurse.
Now to be honest I wasn’t expecting much from Kodachrome, a road trip drama about an old guy with cancer, but this predictable tale has solid direction and superb acting which manages to transform what could have been a mediocre tale and elevates it to a captivating ride.
Nothing in Kodachrome will blow your mind, and it won’t necessarily give you rip roaring night of entertainment. Instead it will draw you in, invite you to be part of the family, and give you some solid life lessons along the way.
