Ruby in Paradise (October Films, 1993, R-rated *)
Ashley Judd made her big-screen debut as Ruby Lee Gissing, a despondent young Tennessee housewife who escapes to Panama City, Florida, in search of freedom, independence, and a better life. This leisurely paced character study was directed by Victor Nuñez who also wrote the screenplay, loosely based on Jane Austen’s novel “Northanger Abbey.” “Ruby in Paradise” won the 1993 Grand Jury Prize for Drama at the Sundance Film Festival and Judd won an Independent Spirit Award as Best Female Lead Actress. *No one under the age of 17 will be admitted without a parent or guardian.
