From the director's commentary, the bedroom scene with Tess Harper and Chris Sarandon was filmed on location in a room too small for a film crew, so the entire scene was filmed from the hallway outside the room, using the reflection of the mirror on the wall. See more »
I grew up with Tim Kirkman, writer and director of this movie. Loggerheads is everything he is....thoughtful, honest, probing, authentic and hopeful. I saw this movie in Nashville, and sensed that the audience was spellbound, as was I, so quiet you could hear a pin drop. The beach, the mountains, the kitchen table, the barber shop, the sanctuary, the kiss, every frame was beautifully and intentionally shot. The cast is totally believable. I've lived next door to and gone to church with these people. Kirkman tells 3 stories that weave into 1 and they are rich with emotion and full of grace. The soundtrack is amazing. Don't miss it.
