The elegant and emotionally complex second feature from writer-director Ava DuVernay follows Ruby (Emayatzy Corinealdi), a young woman from Compton whose life revolves around her imprisoned husband Derek (Omari Hardwick), who is serving an eight-year sentence for an unspecified crime. As the sacrifices Ruby has made for Derek begin to take their toll on her, a chance encounter with a gentle bus driver (David Oyelowo) — and the revelation of a shocking betrayal — forces Ruby to confront the choices she has made, and find the possibility of reclaiming the life she nearly let slip away. Graced with outstanding performances from its remarkable cast, beautiful cinematography by Bradford Young and masterfully subtle writing and direction from DuVernay, Middle of Nowhere is “a plaintive, slow-boiling, quietly soul-stirring drama about a woman coming into her own . . . DuVernay is after something exquisitely simple [here]: she wants you to look, really look, at her characters” (Manohla Dargis, The New York Times).
