'Middle Of Nowhere' Hits Theaters With Indie Soul Sounds

What do Oprah Winfrey, TV One Verses & Flow series host Omari Hardwick and Bounce-Worthy all-stars like Little Dragon and Ra-Re Valverde have in common? The answer is Ava DuVernay's 2012 Sundance Film Festival award-winning independent film, Middle of Nowhere. Opening in select theaters today, Middle of Nowhere stars Emayatzy Corinealdi, David Oyelowo, Lorraine Touissant and the aforementioned Hardwick. The film, deemed "soul-stirring" by the New York Times and recently endorsed via Twitter by Oprah, follows a bright medical student named Ruby who sets aside her dreams and suspends her career when her husband is incarcerated.

The movie's distributor, the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement aka AFFRM, is giving away a free soundtrack sampler to anyone who tweets a picture of their opening weekend ticket stub.
