Critic Reviews for Ruby in Paradise
The film ends up being about whether she'll land on her feet, when what we really want to see is whether she can stand tall.February 4, 2021 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
This is a warm, perceptive film of everyday life, free of epic tragedy, yet it reveals the courage it can take to strike out on one's own and to take charge of one's own destiny.
The tempo is slow and dreamy, but the flavor is rich, and it lasts.
Nunez is a major filmmaker who thrives working in a minor key. He makes Ruby a romantic fable with a tough core of intelligence and wit. It's a real beauty.
Judd is well cast as the small town gal looking to start afresh and gain her independence in this chick flick about learning who you are.February 4, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for Ruby in Paradise
Jul 09, 2011One of the best evocations of smalltown living, capturing the mundane emptiness and the yearning for more from life. Ashley Judd is really great in this as Ruby trying to find a way to break free from her retail sales & trailer park existence.Doctor S Super Reviewer
