Come evening, you will have had a profound, if somewhat scary, evening. Set in rural Arkansas in 1973, Come Morning is the tragic story of Frank and his 10-year-old grandson and the hunting accident that forever changes their lives. The critically acclaimed film festival darling makes its DVD and Blu-Ray debut September 23 from Monarch Home Entertainment.
Film Threat says, “In the end, Come Morning succeeds on the strength of a simple narrative with personal dynamic complexities that reveal themselves slowly. The fact that it’s an old man and his grandson trying to sweep up an accidental murder makes for an intriguing spin on the basic plot, adding even more depth. When will the violence end, considering it persists even when unintended?”
rank (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.
