Beautifully acted, structurally sophisticated heart-tugger.

New York Post
This movie takes its sweet time wrapping together three related tales set in various regions of North Carolina -- to ultimately devastating effect.

L.A. Weekly
Undeniably precious, it may make some viewers fidgety, but others will find that the reflective melancholy that overcomes both director and cast (all superb) is a sweet contagion.

If it isn't easy being any of the troubled people wandering through the film, Loggerheads makes it easy not only to believe in them, but to care about them as well.
70
For a film in a naturalistic mode, Loggerheads gets a shade too elliptical at its finish but still leaves a deep impression as to how irrevocable life's choices can be.
50
The Hollywood Reporter
A drama that is more contemplative at times than dramatic yet one containing several powerful moments.
50
Variety
A respectably crafted, earnest ensemble drama.

New York Daily News
Hunt and, especially, Harper do excellent work rounding out sketchily-written roles. But Pardue, who offers little beyond movie-star looks, is either miscast or genuinely unable to grasp his character's intense longing and insecurity.
50
The A.V. Club
A little less earnestness could have done this movie some good.
40
Film Threat
As impatient as I was with Loggerheads, I can't hate it. The sincerity of its performances is too real; its compassion for its characters is too strong. On the other hand, I haven't mentioned yet that the loggerhead is a species of turtle.
