Elizabeth Olsen: Netflix Isn’t Killing Cinema, It’s Helping Indie Films Find Their Audience
This month at the movies includes a pair of Elizabeth Olsen-starring films, thanks to two features exploring decidedly different release strategies. Of course there’s this week’s big budget blockbuster, “Avengers: Infinity War,” which features the actress reprising her role as the powerful mutant Scarlet Witch, but last week also saw the release of Mark Raso’s “Kodachrome,” which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. The film, a low-key drama starring Olsen, Ed Harris, and Jason Sudeikis, was picked up by Netflix out of the festival.

Despite Olsen’s role in the billion-dollar Marvel Cinematic Universe, she’s stayed true to her indie roots over the years, continuing to worker on smaller films like “Wind River” and “Ingrid Goes West,” both of which debuted at Sundance last year. As the indie film distribution model continues to evolve and change, Olsen has become a staunch proponent

Kodachrome | Review

Picture This: Raso’s Estranged Road Movie Wrecks At The Starting Gun

Coming across like a thin coat of bright paint over dated decorative wallpaper sans originality, Mark Raso has outwardly attempted a love letter to analog photography, utilizing a remarkable cast and a wide array of scenic locations to do so. However (in actuality), Kodachrome is a succession of gimmicky plot lines so exhaustingly predictable that only a paltry few micro-moment snapshots of enjoyment actually bleed through.

Inspired by the 2010 New York Times article by A.G. Sulzberger, “For Kodachrome Fans, Road Ends at Photo Lab in Kansas”, the film…

‘Kodachrome’ Review: Jason Sudeikis-Ed Harris Estranged Father/Son Road-Trip Story Develops Into Touching Picture

  • Deadline
You might have heard the old Paul Simon song “Kodachrome,” a lyric inspired by the Kodak film, but now in the new similarly titled film that Netflix unleashes on Friday, it is a wholly different story altogether.

Kodachrome, which had its world premiere at last year’s Toronto Film Festival where the streamer won distribution rights, comes from writer Jonathan Tropper and director Mark Raso and finds itself at the crossroads of a world moving from analog to digital. But it transfers that notion to a very human and recognizable road-trip movie that becomes the final journey of an estranged father and son as they travel deep into Kansas to get the final rolls of Kodachrome film developed just as the last lab is ceasing that business.

That aspect of this fictional story is true. Tropper got the inspiration from a New York Times story detailing Kodak’s decision to

‘Kodachrome’ Film Review: Ed Harris, Jason Sudeikis Make Grown Men Cry

‘Kodachrome’ Film Review: Ed Harris, Jason Sudeikis Make Grown Men Cry
Jason Sudeikis and Ed Harris develop a bittersweet portrait of an estranged father and son in Mark Raso’s “Kodachrome,” which hits Netflix on Friday after bowing at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival.

Sudeikis’ trademark deadpan and salty dog Harris make for plenty of laughs in the dramedy, but some sneaky last minute redemption in Johathan Tropper’s script elevates this kind of standard festival fare.

At Tiff last September, TheWrap spotted more than few men choking back tears and sniffling into their blazers.

Also Read: 'Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero' Film Review: Dog Loves His Doughboys in Animated Wwi True Story

Sudeikis plays Matt, a stagnant indie music executive who has just lost another edgy rock client. Matt believes in the artist as a visionary, to quote Sudeikis’ character directly, in a music landscape filled with Edm and the white noise of social media.

It’s a belief system that fails him, and just as he learns of his imminent firing a nurse (Elizabeth Olsen) to his sick father turns up on his doorstep.

Harris plays a famous photographer with a terminal disease, and has requested his son pilot a road trip to Kansas, where he might develop decades-old photos at the last storefront in America to process Kodachrome film. Matt agrees, because Dad’s connections might help him save his career, but the acid flies the moment the men are reunited and pumps consistently throughout the trip.

“What have you done with your life?” father asks son after barely more than a handshake. Son gleefully responds that the only people left in dad’s life are employees, and soon enough he’ll deservedly die alone.

Olsen becomes inevitable romantic fodder for Sudeikis, though she has an interesting (if not under-explored) backstory as a self-saboteur divorcee. This is the Sudeikis-Harris show, and it really works.

When the foul-mouthed photographer succumbs to his illness, he mourns the loss of all the love he had for his once-infant son. Feeding Matt from a bottle in the middle of the night was the happiest he had ever been, he says, as he wonders aloud what broke inside of him and led him from that place. Cue waterworks.

It should be said that the film does not fetishize the dusty tech of years past, as the premise might suggest. There are plenty of relics like cassette tapes, beat-up Cabirolets, record players and of course Kodak cameras amnd film. None of the equipment is played up for cheap nostalgia.

If anything, that works in movie’s favor. There’s a moment when Sudeikis has to load a camera, and he recites a poem his dad taught him as a child to make sure the film catches and locks into place. It’s almost as tear-jerky as the hospital bed confessions.

Ed Harris & Jason Sudeikis in Official Trailer for Netflix's 'Kodachrome'

"No art worth a damn was ever created out of happiness, I can tell you that much." Netflix has debuted the trailer for an indie titled Kodachrome, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Based on an article by A.G. Sulzberger, the film is about a father and son who take a road trip to Kansas in order to develop photos at Kodak's last Kodachrome lab before it closes its doors forever. It's set during the final days of the admired photo development system known as Kodachrome, with production finishing in 2010. This is clearly a love letter to the art of film and developing film and the days of film, but wrapped around the engaging story of a fun road trip. Kodachrome stars Jason Sudeikis, Ed Harris, Elizabeth Olsen, Wendy Crewson, Bruce Greenwood, and Dennis Haysbert. This looks quite good, it's worth a watch. Here's the first

‘Kodachrome’ Trailer: Jason Sudeikis and Ed Harris Hit the Road as Estranged Father and Son in Netflix Dramedy

‘Kodachrome’ Trailer: Jason Sudeikis and Ed Harris Hit the Road as Estranged Father and Son in Netflix Dramedy
Any road trip would be enhanced by a shaggy-bearded Ed Harris smoking in the back of a convertible, even one with Jason Sudeikis and Elizabeth Olsen at the wheel. The three charismatic actors class up Netflix’s amiable road trip comedy, “Kodachrome,” which recently released an Americana-tinged first trailer. Donning a straw fedora with arms confidently outstretched, Harris growls in his ever deepening baritone: “Of course I know I’m an asshole.” Fun ensues.

Sudeikis plays a son estranged from his dying father (Harris) in “Kodachrome,” the latest film from Canadian filmmaker Mark Raso (“Copenhagen”). With his father’s nurse (Olsen) in tow, their mission is 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.

In her review of the movie out of its Tiff premiere, IndieWire’s Kate Erbland wrote: “Sudeikis, once again

‘Kodachrome’ Review: Another Road Trip Dramedy, But Jason Sudeikis Goes Deeper — Tiff
The Ryder men are relics. Son Matt (Jason Sudeikis) is the kind of A&R dude who believes in the purity of music and his ability to just know when he hears something great, while his dad Ben (Ed Harris) is a lauded photographer who cherishes the look and feel of Kodachrome color reversal film and demands that his life remain “strictly analogue.” Despite their mutually affirmed dinosaur status, they are a long-estranged pair — and then a series of hinky contrivances shove them together in Mark Raso’s amiable “Kodachrome.” The conventional road trip dramedy mines that father-son dynamic for all its worth, but Sudeikis and Harris are very much up to the task, and their chemistry helps the film rise above its tropes.

The film draws from A.G. Sulzberger’s 2010 New York Times article about Kodachrome obsessives who made pilgrimages to small-town Kansas, where there’s one shop that
