Storyline

Jeff is a 40-year-old, beer-drinking, porno-consuming wrestling fanatic with Down's Syndrome. He lives in squalor at home with his 98-year-old, wheelchair-bound adopted mother who pins their future hopes on winning the Publisher's Clearing House Sweepstakes. In the meantime, Jeff continues his daily existence, which includes petty theft, bum-rushing celebrities, and fondling women. At once both disturbing and heart-warming, Jeff is a character you'll never forget. Written by Anonymous

Good first movie, without being exploitive.
20 August 2003 | by (Athens, Georgia) – See all my reviews

Making a documentary about a man with down syndrome can not be an easy thing to do. Some people would simply exploit the subject of the film and play it for laughs. Fortunately, this is not the case with JeffTowne. Daniel Kraus never crossed that line of exploitation, while still providing the viewer with laughs naturally through Jeff's unique personality. Jeff seems a lot happier than other people in the movie and relishes in the fact that he is in this film. This is independent film making at its finest. Kraus didn't worry about having a polished piece of work, but instead focused on telling a unique story about a man that had made an impact on his and his friend's and co-worker's lives.
