This is a quiet movie that is absolutely captivating. It's a simple story envisioned through Adams' confident eye. Also, great performances by Ashley Judd and Jeffrey Donovan help bring it to life.

"The sins of the father," from the Book of Matthew, Lucy cites, is the lightning rod of her theological vent with her parish priest. Since daddy was a womanizer, this must be the reason why I f*** and run, Lucy rationalizes; this must be the "The sins of the father," from the Book of Matthew, Lucy cites, is the lightning rod of her theological vent with her parish priest. Since daddy was a womanizer, this must be the reason why I f*** and run, Lucy rationalizes; this must be the reason I'm always drunk and single. Because of her arrested development, when Cal(Jeffrey Donovan) intervenes between Lucy and a predatory barfly, the girl with daddy issues balks at having her honor defended. She can't see that Cal is her knight and shining armour, or is he? The understated "Come Early Morning" avoids cliched characterizations. After frying frog legs, Cal asks Lucy to perform a wifely function that doesn't suit her; this same function is echoed late in the between an unhappy husband and wife. This first-time writer/director has a soft touch; she eschews big emotional payoffs that sends everyone home happy, in favor of scenes that end in disappointment and heartbreak. "Come Early Morning" seems rudderless, but in the thrilling(quietly so) final act, Lucy's character is defined and set in stone for us. We get her. We like her. Expand

A pleasant surprise. Judd gives one of the year's best performances.
