cinema obscura: Joey Lauren Adams' "Come Early Morning" (2007)
"Come Early Morning," the directorial debut of actress Joey Lauren Adams, will be televised on the Lifetime cable channel at 9 p.m. (est) on Saturday, October 6th.
The film, starring Ashley Judd in another fine performance, played a handful of film festivals, received a limited (very limited) theatrical release earlier this year and then went to DVD - all within the space of a few months.
That's gotta be a record. Another neglected film.
Cinema Obscura is a recurring feature of The Passionate Moviegoer, devoted to those films that have been largely forgotten. Suggestions welcome.
