One of the year’s unexpected treasures, Ava DuVernay’s Middle of Nowhere slides up quietly beside and then hits you like a brick. Sasha, Craig and I got a chance to see this today and hope to talk about it on this week’s Oscar Podcast. Right now I don’t even want to post a synopsis because the less you know the deeper you’ll feel it rock you. Winner of the Director’s Award at Sundance this year, Middle of Nowhere opens in limited release Oct 12. Check two posters after the cut.
