Not Overlooked 

Come Early Morning, the directorial debut from Arkansas-native actress Joey Lauren Adams, was screened at Roger Ebert’s 9th annual Overlooked Film Festival last weekend. The Chicago Sun-Times über critic selects films that either haven’t grossed boffo box-office receipts that are worth another look or classic films worthy of a return to the big screen. Come Early Morning appeared at last year’s Indie Memphis Film Festival and was awarded the Best Narrative Feature prize.

The film stars Ashley Judd as a woman trying to find her way in small-town Arkansas.

In addition to Come Early Morning, this year’s Ebertfest included Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, Herzog’s Stroszek, and Ebert’s own Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

Best of all, Come Early Morning is now available on DVD, so it need not be overlooked any longer.
