Come Early Morning
, the directorial debut from Arkansas-native actress Joey Lauren Adams, was screened at Roger Eberts 9th annual Overlooked Film Festival last weekend. The Chicago Sun-Times
über critic selects films that either havent grossed boffo box-office receipts that are worth another look or classic films worthy of a return to the big screen. Come Early Morning

The film stars Ashley Judd as a woman trying to find her way in small-town Arkansas.
In addition to Come Early Morning, this years Ebertfest included Fellinis La Dolce Vita, Herzogs Stroszek, and Eberts own Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.
