Middle of Nowhere
Ruby drops out of med school to focus on the well-being of her incarcerated husband.
Dir Ava DuVernay
With David Oyelowo, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Lorraine Toussaint
Ruby (Corinealdi) was on her way to becoming a doctor when her husband was sentenced to eight years in prison. She drops out of med school to focus on his well-being while he’s incarcerated. DuVernay picked up the Sundance Directing award for this stirring, character-driven drama that shines a light on an infrequently explored part of African American life.
