'Come Early Morning'

Posted By on Fri, Dec 15, 2006 at 7:16 AM

Is out in theatres today.  The premiere last night at Market Street Cinema was nice.  I went to an early party and then the film, which occupied three theatres.  The post-party at Cornerstone was an added touch.  The was even better the second time.

P. Martin weighed in on it in today's Democrat Gazette,

. . . Come Early Morning is nothing less than a minor key wonder of a film, a character study of novelistic complexity with a sure sense of place and purpose that seems akin to movies made before Hollywood discovered its corporate destiny. . .

Come Early Morning is not simply presentable.  It is a fine, assured work that is well-observed and at times quite wise about the way people sabotage and rescue themselves.  It is a movie we can be proud of because it represents us honestly and with an uncommon depth of human feeling.

The film has a 94% Cream of the Crop rating on rottentomatoes.com.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
