What happens to an African-American woman’s love and marriage when it’s interrupted by her husband’s eight-year prison term?
That’s the complex paradox writer and director Ava DuVernay sets out to answer in the film Middle of Nowhere, which stars Emayatzy Corinealdi, David Oyelowo, Omari Hardwick, Lorraine Toussant and Edwina Findley.
Middle of Nowhere had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, where DuVernay became the first Black woman to earn the best U.S. director award. The film arrives in theaters October 12.
