'Middle of Nowhere' clip: David Oyelowo romances a woman whose husband's in jail -- EXCLUSIVE

What do you do when your husband is sentenced to eight years in prison? In Middle of Nowhere – which won writer-director Ava DuVernay the Best Director award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival – that’s the dilemma facing Ruby (Emayatzy Corinealdi), who drops out of medical school after her husband (Omari Hardwick, Kick-Ass) gets sent to a California slammer. Things get even more complicated for Ruby after a kind bus driver (David Oyelowo, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) begins to woo her – and she begins to let him. Check out an exclusive tender scene from the film, out in limited release Oct. 12, below – followed by the official Sundance preview for the full film:
