  • While Ava may not reach the rousing heights of the similarly-themed titles like Wadjda and Mustang, it certainly puts its sharp-eyed filmmaker Foroughi on the cinematic map.

    April 27, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • At its most gripping, Ava communicates...familiar adolescent agonies through formal detail that makes them smolder anew.

    April 26, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Lurching relentlessly from one conflict to another, the movie distills its emotions - and maintains its momentum - in conversations of remarkably controlled intensity.
