Director Tim Kirkman returns to his native North Carolina to weave a tender and thought-provoking drama about the longing for family and the challenges of keeping one together. Three stories, all centered around Mother’s Day, intertwine to tell a singular tale about the strength of the human heart and the love of family. Tall and world-weary, a handsome young gay drifter, Mark (Kip Pardue), arrives in a small coastal town to watch over the endangered loggerhead turtles that nest there. He finds a kind smile and a bit of solace in a local motel manager, George (Michael Kelly). Grace (Bonnie Hunt), a Southern woman approaching middle age but still lost in the world, returns to her hometown and a domineering mother to search for the son she gave up for adoption long ago. Elizabeth (Tess Harper), the tight-lipped wife of a conservative, small-town preacher, must decide whether to break with both her husband and the church to do right by her son. Anchored by nuanced and inspired performances, a dramatically mature script, and exquisite landscape cinematography, Loggerheads beautifully depicts the lives of characters who are ultimately driven by their hearts and souls to deal with the repercussions of their past actions and to make things right again, no matter how difficult.
