Plot Outline:

A 13 year old girl is struggling with her family history of where she is from. She is shoved from her mother's home to her father's which is not much better. She doesn't know where she belongs in life, but more importantly, she struggles with sexuality and how it should be used.

A drama that deals with sexual situations involving a young teen girl. I like the film's blatant approach to the girl's sexuality, including the way it handles her questionable relationship. It shows only the un-sexy nature of first discoveries and the confusion brought from these things not being discussed with adults. There are a couple characters that felt erratic (namely the girl's father), as well as bits of weirdly written dialogue. A few times in the earlier half, some scenes came off as provocative for the sake of it. Things progressively smoothed out.

The acting wasn't bad and I actually felt for many of the characters. I didn't understand much of it and the drama never gave me much excitement. It was not special but ti was not bad. Don't see it unless you want to take a chance.

The name of the movie "Towelhead" has gotten criticism. So much so that the movie may be appearing under the title "Nothing is Private".

The movie was actually great. It takes place during the early nineties, when Saddam Hussein was feared by all during the Gulf War.

The characters are great. Writer/director Alan Ball (who gives most of the writing credit to the novelist) wrote so seamlessly.

Summer Bashil (the star) was fresh and new. That worked for her most of the time.

The story had incredible setup and payoff without seeming cheesy or didactic. The only reason why I don't rate it higher is because the beginning of the film seemed so flimsy. It made me very nervous. With a sick fascination I kept watching the movie, expecting it to fall apart at anytime. It really is...
