Critic Reviews for AWOL
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.
Talking about class can be ugly. Yet as AWOL asserts, when you dare to comment, sometimes it frees up room for beauty to unfurl.
A muscular debut, modest in the scale of its storytelling, but not in the empathy it inspires and though it may have taken years to complete, "AWOL" was well worth the wait.
Deb Shoval creates a love story that is wrapped up in euphoria, confusion, and heartache all at once and portrays a pretty accurate depiction of messy love.
