About the Movie

Four years ago, Ruby was a vibrant medical student married to the love of her life, Derek. Now, she makes her way to the maximum-security prison on the outskirts of town where her love now resides. But a chance encounter with hard-working bus driver, Brian, and a stunning betrayal shake her to the core. As we chronicle her turbulent yet transformative journey, we witness the emergence of a broken woman made whole.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Middle of Nowhere" carries the imprimatur of Sundance, but without the dreary stereotypes or self-satisfied politics that can (at times unfairly) characterize its offerings. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Oct 11, 2012

Fresh: This is a tough-minded story of change that happens in almost imperceptibly tiny increments - as true growth so often does in reality. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Oct 24, 2012

Fresh: Middle of Nowhere explores the contours of loneliness and the boundaries of loyalty in a way that is both artful and emotionally revealing. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Oct 18, 2012

Fresh: It is uncommon to see serious adult dramas this moving and accomplished, so attuned to real people and their complex, recognizable emotions, no matter the racial makeup of the characters involved. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Oct 11, 2012
