Larry Joe Campbell,
Arkansas, November 1973 - Frank (Michael Ray Davis) and his grandson, D (Thor Wahlestedt) go on an afternoon hunt. Just before dusk, the two hunters wander into the darkening woods to track down their recent kill and, to their horror, find that instead of a deer, they've shot their trespassing neighbor, Marion Mitchell (Thomas Moore). With a history of land disputes with the Mitchells fresh on Frank's mind, he assures the boy that the only option is to hide the body deep in the woods. As the night draws on, they find themselves only deeper in darkness, and the lines between good and evil are no longer clear. Soon they begin to question if everything will really be okay, Come Morning. Written by
Come Morning has a dark beauty about it. I didn't really think about it until after it was over and my wife called it a coming of age story, but that description is very appropriate. It is a dark coming of age story and by the time it's over you will feel for the adult that the little boy is to become. This is not a feel good movie. It will leave you shell shocked but satisfied. The cinematography and locations are beautiful and both do a wonderful job of capturing 1970's rural Arkansas and the mood of this film. The actors, particularly the young lead, do a superb job. There was not a bad performance in this small tight cast. The soundtrack is beautifully done and really supports the movie well, but without getting in the way. This movie is a must see!
