"Loggerheads" interweaves three separate but related stories that take place in different parts of North Carolina. On Mother's Day 1999, Mark, a young drifter with an interest in endangered loggerhead turtles, begins a relationship with motel handyman George. On Mother's Day 2000, Mark's adoptive mother Elizabeth wonders what has become of her estranged son. On Mother's Day 2001, Mark's birth mother Grace quits her job to begin a search for the child she gave up years before-a search that ultimately brings the stories together. Written by
Saw this wonderful film at the Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. Had the pleasure of having the Director there. The film was very multi-layered and pulled your heart in many directions.The acting was very good especially Tess Harper Bonnie Hunt and Kip Pardue (hottie!) Should be required viewing for any in the religious right. It might teach them something about compassion. The audience at the festival was very enthusiastic about the movie and kept the director busy answering many questions about location, filming and even how to make an apple pie with red apples. Would definitely recommend this movie to all audiences- it is not your typical "gay" movie- instead it is a movie that has gay characters- quite refreshing!!
