Quotes

Joey: There was this horse, and it was going blind. It had this big field to wander around him, but it always just stayed right close to near this other horse. Turns out the other horse had a bell around its neck and the blind horse followed this horse wherever it went. They became almost inseparable. Just the sound of it was enough.
Rayna: So, what are you saying that I am... lost and you're gonna show me the way? Or am I the horse with a bell?

AWOL is the story of Joey, a teenage tomboy. She's given a way out of her rural hometown with the army, but everything changes when she meets Rayna...
9 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

AWOL is such an honest film, that when you watch it you effortlessly breathe and feel with its main characters. This is due to director Deb Shoval's remarkable ability to submerge you in a small Pennsylvania coal town, and to actresses Lola Kirke's and Breeda Wool's fearless performances as Joey and Rayna. It is an intimate look at the lives of those who don't often grace the silver screen: soldier recruits, wives, closeted lesbians, and rural American families. AWOL is poignant, guarded, raw- like Joey and Rayna's relationship. Watching it will make you more compassionate, more understanding, and somehow more human.
