The film is based on Angela Shelton's real-life and her experience growing up with her mother, who was erratic and made her move often from one town to the next. See more »
May Jo calls a friend and mentions she and her daughter just left North Carolina. However, the desert-like terrain of the area through which they had been driving clearly was that of the Southwest and not the mountainous region of Appalachia. See more »
What an introduction to Janet McTeer--her charisma cannot be contained!
I urge all film lovers to see -Tumbleweeds-. The relatively unknown cast, director and screenwriter(s) blew me away! This film is a gift of fantastic proportions wrapped in plain, brown paper, so tear into it and see what's awaiting you beyond the simple plot of serial-monogamist mother and almost-fully-teenaged daughter fleeing the scene of yet another bad breakup, and heading West to find a new home. I was gripped by Janet McTeer's powerful performance, and unusual character, from the first scene. I cannot imagine anyone not being similarly bowled over. The supporting cast will also surprise and delight you--why can't all young actors be as natural as Kimberly Brown? Rent it today! :-)
