3SMReviews: Middle of Nowhere
Mostly, I found this movie to be slow, which isn’t a bad thing.* What this movie did have were subtle shifts and a lot of internal introspection and change. Also really good acting by all participants.**
Cost: free from library.
Where watched: at home.
*For instance, it examined gender roles in a much more interesting way than The Best of Me did.
**While Emayatzy Corinealdi was very good in the lead, Lorraine Toussaint really killed me with her portrayal of a mother trying and failing to connect with her daughters.
