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.
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.
Every scene is both light on its feet and weighted with potential import; we never know what is leading where until we're at our destination.
AWOL is a very modest indie - and it could really have used a re-think on its gratingly obvious score - but it's rewarding in a lot of ways.
