Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Penelope's depression eventually turns into a mild breakdown or an explosion of imagination -- it's smartly unclear which."
‑ Inkoo Kang, Village Voice
"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
"The movie is a watchable collection of images that never comes together."
‑ Miriam Bale, New York Times
"'Towheads' cleverly embodies the inherent absurdities in the daily struggle to make each moment feel worthwhile."
‑ Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
"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
