In Carmen and Lola, Arantxa Echevarria crafts a film that realistically presents the struggles young people face in isolated communities. 


Lola, a closeted lesbian living in a traditional Romani community and Carmen, a beautiful family friend engaged to her cousin, begin to develop feelings, despite knowing it could mean the end of the lives they have always known. As each girl begins to solely rely on the other for support, they start to resent the world around them and, inevitably, their feelings.


Carmen and Lola is a look at the consequences people face in intimate communities when they choose to go against tradition, even if it is for something as remarkable as love.

Echevarria elicits fine, naturalistic performances from the mostly non-professional cast, and the two leads are likeable presences who definitely have chemistry together - The Hollywood Reporter
