Story


Winner of the Best Director Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, "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.

by Karina Longworth [Village Voice]

by Zeba Blay [Slant Magazine]
