Critic Reviews for AWOL

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Shoval ... captures the blind recklessness of first love, in a lesbian love story that's only partially about the characters' queerness.

"AWOL" holds attention with its strong lead performances, nicely etched support turns, and nuanced portrait of a downwardly mobile "heartland" Caucasian America too seldom portrayed in movies given the large chunk of the populace it encompasses.

This love story is as much about the specificity of their socio-economic positions as it is about the effects of homophobia.

July 12, 2017 | Full Review…

An affecting clash between yearning to escape your fate, and knowing that truly leaving something or somewhere behind isn't easy.

March 21, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It grabs the audience's attention from the beginning.

It's an authentic and emotional film, with first-rate turns by Wool and especially Kirk.
