About the Movie

Meet Ruth Stoops. She's homeless, dumb as a cinder block and loves to get high huffing spray paint. Life would be dandy if it weren't for one tiny problem-she's gotten herself knocked up for the umpteenth time, and it seems like everybody's got an opinion about what she should do-from an angry judge to God-fearing Baby-Savers to radical lesbian feminists. And Ruth just wants to party! Laura Dern stars in an award-winning bravura performance backed by a stellar ensemble cast including Burt Reynolds, Mary Kay Place, Swoosie Kurtz, Kelly Preston, Kurtwood Smith and Tippi Hendren. Written and directed by the team who brought you Election and About Schmidt, Citizen Ruth is a hilarious, provocative look at what happens when a sperm meets an egg and sparks fly.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's probably too schematic to reward more than a single viewing, but as a provocative one-time surprise it may become a specialized sleeper. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010
