Winner of the the Best Director Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival (Read our feature with director Ava DuVernay), “Middle of Nowhere” follows Ruby, a bright medical student who sets aside her dreams and suspends her career when her husband is incarcerated. As the committed couple stares into the hollow end of an eight-year prison sentence, Ruby must learn to live another life, one marked by shame and separation. But through a chance encounter and a stunning betrayal that shakes her to her core, this steadfast wife is soon propelled in new and often shocking directions of self-discovery – caught between two worlds and two men in the search for herself.
The elegant, emotional drama stars David Oyelowo (Lincoln, Jack Reacher, Paperboy, The Help, Red Tails), Omari Hardwick (Sparkle, For Colored Girls) and the leading lady, newcomer Emayatzy Corinealdi.
