Penelope's depression eventually turns into a mild breakdown or an explosion of imagination -- it's smartly unclear which.

The movie is a watchable collection of images that never comes together.

It is not quite explicable, but Towheads, in its relatively small means and large compass, had for me a touching overtone of bravery.

'Towheads' cleverly embodies the inherent absurdities in the daily struggle to make each moment feel worthwhile.

There's but one sequence in the entire movie that offers even the slightest bit of filmmaking verve, and even this speaks to the project's essential myopia.

Audience Reviews for Towheads


Here is a movie that tries so desperately to be quirky you can't help but feel sorry for it. And just when you think there might be some explanation behind the shameless gags the movie ends. What it wants to be is a funny indie movie. But before Towheads even thinks of launching it fails.
