About the Movie

Lola Kirke (MOZART IN THE JUNGLE, MISTRESS AMERICA) shines as Joey, an aimless high school graduate searching for a way out of Pennsylvania coal country. A visit to an Army recruiting office appears to provide a path. However, a chance encounter with magnetic Rayna (UNREAL’s Breeda Wool), a slyly seductive housewife and mother neglected by her long-haul trucker husband, changes Joey’s trajectory irrevocably. As Joey falls more in love with Rayna, clouded judgment leads her down a path she can’t turn back from. With powerful performances from Kirke and Wool, director Deb Shoval’s feature film debut is a splendid and brooding meditation on the boundless possibilities of first love constricted by the trials of rural poverty.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "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. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Apr 17, 2016

Fresh: Shoval ... captures the blind recklessness of first love, in a lesbian love story that's only partially about the characters' queerness. – Katie Walsh, The Playlist, May 18, 2016

Great drama

This movie never had a dull moment. The depictions of rural Pennsylvania seemed accurate. It does show how poverty keeps seeping in on dreams and ambition and narrowing opportunities.The ending was a surprise.

The end ruined it for me

Started out really good, but it started losing steam towards
the end for me. One scene didn't really fit with the tone of the
movie. It didn't fit where the movie was going. And sorry, but the ending
ruined the whole movie for me. Acting was good, and the story had a lot of potential. It
just fell apart at the end for me.


This is my new favorite movie. A spectacular and honest love story without a trace of cliche. This is a celebration of women. Lola Kirke is phenomenal, as well as the director. I'd highly recommend this film. ❤️❤️
