The highy-anticipated theatrical run for Ava DuVernay's critically-acclaimed drama Middle Of Nowhere, will begin on October 12, via Participant Media and AFFRM.

The film, which centers on an African American woman struggling to maintain her marriage and identity, after her husband is incarcerated, stars Emayatzy CorinealdiDavid OyelowoOmari Hardwick, Lorraine Touissaint, and Edwina Findley.

Award-winning DP Bradford Young lensed the film, DuVernay's follow-up to last year's Salli Richardson-Whitfield starrer I Will Follow.
