Honestly, I had no idea what this movie was about so I seriously didn't know what to expect from it. Eventually, when the end credits rolled out, I discovered it was directed by Alan Ball, the creator of 'Six Feet Under', one of my favorite TV shows ever, and this was his directing debut.

“Honestly, I had no idea what this movie was about so I seriously didn't know what to expect from it. Eventually, when the end credits rolled out, I discovered it was directed by Alan Ball, the creator of 'Six Feet Under', one of my favorite TV shows ever, and this was his directing debut. Well, even though it was an intriguing tale about the sexual awakening of a very young girl, it was also one hell of a creepy movie. I mean, right from the start, when the stepfather start shaving the private parts of his 13 years old setp-daugther, the whole thing felt pretty awkward and it never got better. As a matter of fact, it had some similar aspects to 'American Beauty' (also written by Alan Ball), expect that this time, Kevin Spacey would have sex with the girl and the girl wouldn't be 16 but 13 ” read more

" Towelhead is a fine examination of the loss of innocence by being pulled and pushed in all sorts of directions and by different people, all at once. It's too bad that the performances feel so studied and the lines of dialogue so rehearsed- it renders artificial what could've otherwise been great and poignant."

"Pätkä on kaikkea sitä, mitä Alan Ballilta uskaltaa odottaa. Ahdistunutta, häiriintynyttä, synkkää ja rohkeaa kamaa."
