I was excited to see Comfort and Joy on your list, as it's about time that some Bill Forsyth available. But it turns out to be a good news/bad news situation. It's not Bill Forsyth. But it's Maggie Greenwald! But it's a Lifetime Channel movie. I don't hold out hope that it's great, but please let me know if it is. The Kill-Off is still the best Jim Thompson movie, and Ballad of Little Jo is interesting, if not perfect. Didn't care much for Songcatcher, though.

Greenwald's "Comfort and Joy" isn't bad, but it isn't a must-see.
