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

Don't miss it!
21 April 2005 | by jencfullerSee all my reviews

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.
