CITIZEN RUTH is the story of Ruth Stoops (Laura Dern), a woman who nobody even noticed -- until she got pregnant. Now, everyone wants a piece of her. The film is a comedy about one woman caught in the ultimate tug-of-war: a clash of wild, noisy, ridiculous people that rapidly dissolves into a media circus.
Directed by Alexander Payne (SIDEWAYS, ELECTION, THE DESCENDANTS, NEBRASKA)
