Critic Reviews for AWOL

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (1)

  • 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.

    May 18, 2016 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • "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.

    February 5, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • Completely bereft of momentum, it staggers and stumbles its torturous way through an eighty five-minute run-time without offering anything creative or original.

    December 28, 2018 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…
  • 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.
