Come Early Morning ★★½ 2006 (R)

Lucy Fowler (Judd) lives two lives in her Arkansas community: she's very efficient at her day contractor job while raising hell as a harddrinking, onenightstand kinda gal in the evening. Maybe she's just emulating her womanizing, alcoholic pop (Wilson). Courtly newcomer Cal (Donovan) refuses to let her use him and leave, but even Cal may not be able to overcome Lucy's selfdestructiveness. Adams does well with her sliceoflife tale—her writing/directing debut—as does surrogate Judd (Adams once intended to play the lead herself). 97m/C DVD . US Ashley Judd, Jeffrey Donovan, Tim Blake Nelson, Laura Prepon, Stacy Keach, Scott Wilson, Diane Ladd, Pat Corley; D: Joey Lauren Adams; W: Joey Lauren Adams; C: Tim Orr; M: Alan Brewer.
