TOWELHEAD

Towelhead is a movie about the difficulties of growing up a sex-obssessed Arab girl in the post 9/11 world.  Everyone thinks you’re Mexican, LOL!

Anyway, although the content sounds pretty def poetry/chick lit lite (it’s based on an Alicia Erian novel), Towelhead was written and directed by Alan Ball, who wrote American Beauty and created Six Feet Under, so you know there’s gonna be some dark shit going on.

It premiered at Sundance to overwhelmingly positive reviews.  And if nothing else, Aaron Eckhart is in it, and I trust his chin.  Would a guy with a cleft like that ever steer you wrong?  I think not, my friend.

(Opens August 8th, trailer after the jump)
