About the Movie
Brooklyn mother of two, Penelope (Shannon Plumb), struggles to traverse the daily obstacle course that is motherhood with little help from her husband, Matt (Derek Cianfrance). As his flourishing creative career consumes all of his time, Penelope struggles to balance her artistic aspirations with her motherly responsibilities, stopping at nothing in a quest to find her artistic voice. Plumb's real-life husband and children play her family in this playful, honest, and at times, harsh look at modern-day motherhood and the difficulties families face everyday.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The movie is a watchable collection of images that never comes together.
Fresh: Penelope's depression eventually turns into a mild breakdown or an explosion of imagination -- it's smartly unclear which.
Fresh: It is not quite explicable, but Towheads, in its relatively small means and large compass, had for me a touching overtone of bravery.
Rotten: 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.
This is a fabulous film- the kind you never want to end and will watch repeatedly. It's an inspiration...
