Critic Reviews for AWOL

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

  • Cinematographer Gal Deren's lensing of Rust Belt locations finds a place both lovely to linger in and worth leaving, matching the bittersweet sound of the folky songs Kirke sings while the two characters are alone.

  • 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.

  • [Lola] Kirke gives an amazing performance, but it's [Breeda] Wool who has the harder role, and effortlessly shines.

  • Completely bereft of momentum, it staggers and stumbles its torturous way through an eighty five-minute run-time without offering anything creative or original.

  • Talking about class can be ugly. Yet as AWOL asserts, when you dare to comment, sometimes it frees up room for beauty to unfurl.
