Theater 2 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2), T2
2013. USA. Written and directed by Shannon Plumb. With Plumb, Derek Cianfrance, Cody Cianfrance, Walker Cianfrance. Like many women who opt to be full-time stay-at-home mothers, Penelope also wants more. She’s not perfect in her housekeeping—or even opening up a box of cereal for her very energetic boys—but she gets it done with humor. Her husband Matt, an up-and-coming director, is rarely home. In fact, we never see his face. Penelope is incredibly talented, funny, and fearless, even if she herself doesn’t think so. Plumb’s feature directorial debut is a witty take on the thorny concept of having it all. Towheads was included in our 2013 New Directors/New Films festival. 85 min.
