Details Limited Release: Nov 10, 2006; Rated: R; Length: 97 Minutes; Genres: Drama, Romance; With: Jeffrey Donovan and Ashley Judd; Distributor: Roadside Attractions

As Lucy, who likes her Coors Light and her men but slinks away after drunken one-night stands as if she were a man, Ashley Judd (pictured) gives a performance in Come Early Morning that’s a full-on study of pride and pleasure built around a core of distress. That said, the real revelation of this touching and fine-grained character study, set in small-town Arkansas, is the splendid job that Joey Lauren Adams did writing and directing it. The baby-voiced costar of Chasing Amy proves an effortless filmmaker, turning Lucy’s journey into the awakening of a soul.
