Middle of Nowhere is a profound movie. It contains a plethora of plot turns, clear cut descriptive and relate-able character motivations, and is acted very very convincingly. I found myself engrossed in the story, and found the piece that related to me.
What I applaud the writer/director of this movie with is the ability to specifically articulate what it is like to love deeply, and lose deeply. I also appreciated David O's character's complexity-how he admitted his love for his first wife and yet knew his reality. I loved the rebound move that was illustrated, as well. Many in real life would balk at that but it was tight how, in many ways, they both needed each other, and were sensitive to that.
Also, mom dukes has got some serious thespian skills. Was I the only one that was like, that's my mother/grandmother/aunt? If PRECIOUS one an Academy Award, in my book this should win several. I'm calling it now.
Anyway, I'd be interested in reading other reviews.

Is this a free screening or regular ticket price? That is not clear and the link for tickets does not show this movie on the Regal Gallery Place stadium schedule.
