Loggerheads Reviews

February 3, 2006
The dramatic tension is nil. But the performances, particularly by Hunt (in a non-comedic role, for a change), are worth a look.

... an understated and heartfelt story, superbly acted, with a strong sense of people and place.
January 12, 2006
Despite a meandering tone, Loggerheads is consistently watchable thanks to committed actors playing recognizable, decent folks just trying to do the right thing -- or rectify mistakes of the past.

This quiet community and family drama set on the North Carolina shore offers a bighearted outlook on how to absorb change and defeat.

Slow, unadorned, compassionate, and earnest, Loggerheads is a low-fi throwback to the independent films of the 1980s and '90s -- heartland miniatures hewn from plainspoken lives.

Loggerheads has the best qualities of independent filmmaking.

Featuring a number of nicely honed performances and weaving three initially disparate tales into one, Loggerheads delivers far more than you might expect.

This felt like a Lifetime movie to me.
October 28, 2005
An achievement for Kirkman, and the best acting opportunity nearly everyone in the cast has had in a long time.

In the end, for all its good intentions, Loggerheads is so slow and earnest that it's hard for the viewer not to lose patience.

Loggerheads is not a movie where the emotions are tidy and the messages are clear.
October 20, 2005
A delicate if somewhat soap-operatic Southern mood piece that occasionally clicks.
October 19, 2005
A touching and savory Southern ensemble drama.

If it isn't easy being any of the troubled people wandering through the film, Loggerheads makes it easy not only to believe in them, but to care about them as well.
October 14, 2005
Writer-director Kirkman takes the basic ingredients of a Lifetime movie and turns Loggerheads into something special indeed.
October 14, 2005
[An] underachieving indie.
October 14, 2005
A warm, even loving film.
October 13, 2005
Undeniably precious, it may make some viewers fidgety, but others will find that the reflective melancholy that overcomes both director and cast (all superb) is a sweet contagion.
October 11, 2005
Unexpectedly resonant.
September 24, 2005
Quietly involving, albeit uneven.
