THR is reporting that Netflix has acquired Lizzie’s upcoming movie “Kodachrome” for $4 million.

Netflix has acquired road movie Kodachrome, which stars Elizabeth Olsen, for $4 million.

Kodachrome tells the story of a record label boss who embarks on a road trip across the U.S. in order to fulfill his father’s dying wish and have a roll of Kodachrome film developed, only to find there’s just one remaining shop accepting them.

Jason Sudeikis and Ed Harris also stars in the movie from director Mark Raso.

Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Eric Robinson, Jonathan Tropper and Leon Clarance produced, along with 21 Laps’ Shawn Levy and Dan Levine. Dan Cohen, Mary Anne Waterhouse, Laure Vaysse and Jo Monk executive produced.

The film is based on a Dec. 29, 2010 New York Times article by A.G. Sulzberger, “For Kodachrome Fans, Road Ends at Photo Lab in Kansas.” Tropper wrote the screenplay after Robinson, Goldsmith-Vein, Levy and Levine optioned the article.

Kodachrome made its world premiere at TIFF on Sept. 8 in the special presentations section. The deal was negotiated by WME Global and CAA on behalf of the filmmakers and The Solution as sales agent for the film.

Lizzie’s upcoming movie “Kodachrome” screened at Toronto International Film Festival yesterday and the first reviews are in. Be sure to check out pieces from the reviews below!

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 camera 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.TheWrap

Sudeikis truly excels in the role, repeatedly hitting emotional highs and lows with complete conviction and practiced awareness of the inevitability of human shortcomings and the redemptive power of acceptance. Olsen as Zooey serves as the buffer that tentatively prevents the two male personalities from combusting, providing a measure of reason and compassion that will surely test the limits of her easygoing tolerance.

Once they get on the road, however, the plot machinations relax, and we can start to figure out who these characters are. Unlike too many similar family melodramas, Matt’s reasons for hating his father aren’t withheld unnecessarily – Ben slept around on Matt’s mom, and spent all the most pivotal moments of his son’s life away on assignment. These Oedipal tensions simmer, and occasionally rise to a thought-provoking boil, as the threesome head toward Chicago, Meanwhile Matt and the recently-divorced Zooey start to make eyes at one another, and Sudeikis and Olsen display some charming, low-key chemistry.Variety
