Storyline

"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 Eric Sorensen

loved it
25 April 2005 | by msliberry-1See all my reviews

I thought 'Loggerheads' was wonderful. I saw it at the River Run Film Festival in Winston Salem, NC. The director/writer attended the screening as well. Afterward, he talked about the making of the film and it was very interesting. He indicated that the film may not be released nationwide. He seemed to think that it would play on the Sundance Channel and then be released to DVD. What a shame. It should be released nationally, in my opinion.

The actors were amazing and the story was so interesting. I loved the overlapping, intertwined stories. Bonnie Hunt was GREAT. She should do more dramatic work, because her performance was beautiful. The film itself was slow and deliberate in its pacing (kinda like the South) but it needed to be that way to develop the characters. I was riveted the whole time. Check it out, if you get a chance.

By the way--contrary to what one poster said, I know no one involved in the making of this film. I paid the ticket price and got more than my money's worth.
