Check out the new trailer for Ava DuVernay's excellent drama "Middle of Nowhere," which won her Sundance's Directing Award. Warmly received at Sundance and its Los Angeles premiere at LAFF, the film opens October 12. Synopsis is below:
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.
