  • Summary: Inspired by true events, Loggerheads tells the story of an adoption "triad" -- birth mother, child, and adoptive parents -- each in three interwoven stories in the days leading up to Mother’s Day weekend, and each in one of the three distinctive geographical regions of North Carolina: mountains, Piedmont and coastal plain.

    Beautifully acted, structurally sophisticated heart-tugger.
  2. Kirkman is shrewd enough to coax a wistful performance out of pretty boy Kip Pardue.
  3. 75
    This movie takes its sweet time wrapping together three related tales set in various regions of North Carolina -- to ultimately devastating effect.

    If Loggerheads sometimes feels too forced, it features some unforgettable performances, especially by Hunt, an accomplished comedienne who makes an impressive debut as a dramatic lead here.
  5. Full of compassion and good intentions, but Kirkman never spins the stories into compelling cinema.
  6. 50
    It's all in the telling, and Loggerheads practically aches with its own heal-the-world earnestness.

    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.
