Critic Reviews for Ava

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (5)

Ava is a layered, complex character, and one that anyone who was ever a teenager can identify with.

July 13, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Foroughi finds the balance in an overwrought situation.

April 27, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

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…

Lurching relentlessly from one conflict to another, the movie distills its emotions - and maintains its momentum - in conversations of remarkably controlled intensity.

April 26, 2018 | Full Review…

At its most gripping, Ava communicates...familiar adolescent agonies through formal detail that makes them smolder anew.

April 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Foroughi's shrewd filmmaking uses the frame to advantage: the tightening of Ava's constraints is matched by the tightening of the mise en scène around her.
