Two New York City girls make a pact to lose their virginity during their first summer out of high school. When they both fall for the same street artist, the friends find their connection tested for the first time.
The story of the country-western singer Hank Williams, who in his brief life created one of the greatest bodies of work in American music. The film chronicles his rise to fame and its tragic effect on his health and personal life.
Thérèse grows up with her aunt and cousin. Around 1860 the aunt decides they move to Paris and that her son and Thérèse get married. The joy- and loveless life changes when her husband brings a friend home. The affair turns ugly for all.
A young woman struggles to move on with her life after the death of her husband, an acclaimed folk singer, when a brash New York writer forces her to confront her loss and the ambiguous circumstances of his death.
The film is based on A.G. Sulzberger's 2010 New York Times article "For Kodachrome Fans, Road Ends at Photo Lab in Kansas" about a father and son who take a road trip to Kansas in order to develop photographs at Kodak's last Kodachrome lab before it closes its doors forever.Written by
The camera that Ben (Ed Harris) uses is a Leica M4-P , a rangefinder camera built from 1980 to 1986. As cutting cost strategy this is one of several Leica models manufactured mostly in Midland, Canada, instead of the legendary Leica factory in Wetzlar, Germany. See more »
When Zoe examines Matt's old record collection, you can see several dozen LPs piled in a stack (in their sleeves, fortunately). No fan/collector would ever have kept his/her vinyls piled on one another horizontally, especially someone who eventually goes into the music business, it damages the grooves. You keep them upright (or vertical as it's called). See more »

This isn't your typical road movie. When a nurse (Elizabeth Olsen) shows up at Matt's work to tell him that his father is dying, he couldn't care less. They haven't spoken in over a decade. But wait, there's more! Zoey wants Matt to accompany Ben (Ed Harris) to the only lab in the country that is still processing Kodachrome film before it shuts down in a week. He basically gawks at her and tells her to get lost, but she's persistent, to the benefit of all involved.
In 'Kodachrome', we're taken on a beautiful journey of years lost and bitter roads not traveled. The character arcs are believable, for the most part. Being a father, I got a bit teary-eyed at the "climax" of the movie (spoiler alert: You will never see it coming!).
The cinematography is excellent. They weren't afraid to let the action play out in darkness. Not everything is perfectly lit, and that lends to the authenticity of the film. The restitution at the end of the film feels well deserved: Just leave it to a road trip to have an estranged father and his down-and-out son come to terms with their past, as well as confront questions about their future.
