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. – Miriam Bale, New York Times, Jan 22, 2014

Fresh: Penelope's depression eventually turns into a mild breakdown or an explosion of imagination -- it's smartly unclear which. – Inkoo Kang, Village Voice, Jan 31, 2014

Fresh: It is not quite explicable, but Towheads, in its relatively small means and large compass, had for me a touching overtone of bravery. – Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic, Jun 14, 2013

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. – Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine, Jan 19, 2014
