It’s not always easy to keep an eye on an indie movie that premiered last year and is only being released now, but we hope that “AWOL,” which was unveiled at Tribeca Film Festival in 2016, is one you make a note to track down.
Starring Lola Kirke, Breeda Wool, Dale Soules, Bill Sage and Britne Oldford, and directed by Deb Shoval, the film tracks a “deeply relatable and affecting” lesbian romance that secretly blooms in a small town. Here’s the official synopsis:
A young woman Joey is in search of direction in her small town. A visit to an army recruiting office appears to provide a path, but when she meets and falls in love with Rayna that path diverges in ways that neither woman anticipates.
“AWOL” will open in NYC with IFP in Brooklyn on May 19th and will hit iTunes, Digital HD, and On Demand platforms on May 23rd.
