Just last night Belinda and I watched a really enjoyable road movie on Netflix, entitled KODACHROME.
Ed Harris did an amazing job as a globe-trotting photographer who is trying to make some sort of a peace with his estranged son (Jason Sudeikis). Also along for the ride was Elizabeth Olsen, portraying the photographer’s nurse.
I didn’t feel a lot of heat from either Sudeikis or Olsen, but Harris was really taking this movie seriously. The man must have fasted for a month to get himself ready for the role.
I took a look at the reviews on imdb and they were sadly mixed. Some folks felt like this was just a same-old-same-old road-movie father-and-son-reunion. I would argue that you really need to watch this flick with a subtler eye. The cinematography is gently masterful.
Anyone with a love for old school photography really ought to see this flick. Watch it right to the end. This movie gets stronger as it goes. Give it a chance and see what develops.
Have a look at the trailer.
