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

Trivia

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 »

A film whose power grows even after the final fadeout
8 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is a rare film, one which moved me tremendously, but whose greatest power I felt as the haunting music of Mark Geary played over the end titles. Though I'd been a bit teary as several of the characters finally met at the film's conclusion, it was after the curtain went down, so to speak, that I really found myself crying as the impact of what I'd seen sank in. As another reviewer stated, this film shows how far the "gay movie" has come in just over a decade. The sophistication and complexity of the story, the depth of the performances, and the artistry of the writing/directing make Loggerheads a truly outstanding film. One comment: let's stop saying that an actor like Kip Pardue is "brave" for playing a gay part. He's an actor, and a good one at that, who chooses a part for what it offers him as an artist, and more power to him for that. The truly brave actor is an openly gay one who plays a gay role without concern that this will prevent him from playing straight parts in the future. No matter how many times Kip plays gay, assuming he is straight, he will have no trouble being cast in a straight role, not in 2005.
