    In fact, "restraint" is the word that best characterizes DuVernay's film. This isn't a movie filled with overt action or outbursts of melodrama.

    At heart, Middle of Nowhere offers material we've seen many times before. But between her perceptive direction and Corinealdi's layered performance, this modest, micro-budgeted story has been beautifully packaged.

    What makes Middle of Nowhere a break-even proposition, rather than something to avoid, is that it deals with an aspect of life and with characters rarely seen in movies.

    They're enough to elevate the film above its somewhat by-the-numbers plot and add a little juice to its slightly sluggish forward momentum.

    Solidly acted but aloof and slow as molasses.

    Powerful subtle performances from the cast. The movie allows you to see the issues and dilemmas of all types of love gone wrong.

    This movie is a complete opposite of an action movie. No car chases, no rapes, almost no guns.
    I am sure some people with find it slow and boring. I find it deep and profound.
    This movie is about basic things in human life: about relationship between husband and wife, daughter and mother, sister and sister, man and woman.
    About situations where there is no obvious right or wrong.
    A movie superbly done.
