Netflix has picked up the rights to 'Kodachrome', set during the final days of Kodachrome film development. The movie is named after the popular Kodak film that had a 75-year run before coming to an abrupt end.
The film, which was inspired by a New York Times article, chronicles the journey of a father and son to the last remaining photo lab in the world processing and developing the film before they closed their doors for good.
The father and son were not the only ones making the journey at the time. The news had traveled far and wide, prompting people from around the world to mail their Kodachrome rolls and even show up in person at the Kansas photo lab.
The film has been received positively at film festivals and will also receive a theatrical release. Kodachrome stars Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis.
