Brief Synopsis – A music producer is convinced to go on a road trip with his terminally ill photographer father who he hasn’t seen in years in order to get precious role of film developed before they stop developing that kind of film.
Bottom Line – Great film that works so well largely due to the superb performances by Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis. Sudeikis especially stands out here and proves that he is such a great dramatic actor and shouldn’t only stay in comedies. It is so easy to believe the kind of relationship between these character and how it evolves over the course of the movie. There are some predictable aspects of the story, but they still find some very poignant ways to show the dynamics between the characters. The supporting cast is also great with Elisabeth Olsen, Bruce Greenwood, Wendy Crewson and Dennis Haysbert all helping to add so much to the development of these characters. Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The lab in question, Dwayne’s Photography, is still in business. They just don’t process Kodachrome anymore. (From IMDB)
Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
