Tournant pour la première fois en anglais, Léa Pool a fait de Lost and Delirious une ode à lamour passionnel, un film qui a les audaces et les errements de ladolescence quil décrit.
Trois ans après avoir perdu sa mère, une adolescente (Mischa Barton) entre au collège, où elle partage une chambre avec une fille de bonne famille (Jessica Paré) et une orpheline rebelle (Piper Perabo) qui saiment sous le regard, dabord incrédule puis complice, de la nouvelle venue. Lorsque leur liaison est découverte, le scandale éclate. La première niera tout, se jetant dans les bras dun garçon, tandis que la seconde, folle de douleur, tentera de la reconquérir.
Adapté du roman The Wives of Bath, de Susan Swan, le scénario de Judith Thompson névite pas les invraisemblances et les raccourcis, mais la réalisation de Léa Pool est impeccable. Depuis le début des années 80, la réalisatrice de La Femme de lhôtel et de La Demoiselle sauvage a développé un univers et un langage très particuliers. Ici, après le virage amorcé avec Emporte-moi, elle poursuit dans une veine plus accessible, laissant toute la place à lintrigue, et obtenant de ses jeunes actrices des performances exceptionnelles. Cest le cas en particulier de Piper Perabo, vibrante à souhait.
Trop grand public pour être un film dauteur, mais trop personnel pour être strictement commercial, Lost and Delirious est un genre de Dead Poets Society au féminin, un film sensuel et lyrique qui exalte la soif dabsolu propre à cet âge critique. --Éric Fourlanty

Mainly, it's about the damage done by labels, as lead Paulie says to Mouse, "I'm not a girl in love with a girl, I'm Paulie in love with Tory." So don't label, watch. And don't think this movie won't move you if you aren't gay. It will.
I'd say it's one of the most quietly powerful movies I've ever watched.
Of course, I'm bound to get some flack for these comments, but, alas, this is how it is and how I see the movie.
The story focuses on three roommates Polly, Tori and Sarah, at a prestigious boarding school where it's seemingly so easy for the girls to sneak out at night.
Well, Polly and Tori are engaged in one hell of a steamy relationship. In fact, they go at it just about every night. Well, when they are caught, Tori calls it off, and starts dating a man (in fact, he gets her up against a tree on their first date!! Damn, I should've gone to boarding school!).
Well, Polly gets all bent out of shape and jealous and starts acting like a total wacko.
And so on and so on. Aside from the hot sex, the whole thing just doesn't amount to much more than a homoerotic DAWSONS CREEK episode. Even the soundtrack is pretty foolish (listen for the absolutely absurd, recurring theme song that has the oh-so-poetic lyrics "What pretty hair......Can I Kiss You? Can I Kiss You............There?" YEAH!
That pretty much sums up the film, but, alas, I'm not going to lie- When it's on late night, you can sure as hell bet that I'm gonna watch it!
The one thing I don't understand is this- I wish they did more with the virginal, Sarah. I figured when the relationship between Polly and Tori ended, that Polly would sorta recruit Sarah and "show her the ropes." They kind of hint at that, but it never comes to fruition. Oh well. Perhaps there will be "Lost and Delirious 2: The Lost Days/Nights."
I am led to believe that Lost & Delirious was a low key project and one that didn't garner any true form of mainstream audience. And that is a shame. Without doubt, despite its low budget tag, Piper's performance was of 'Oscar Award' strength. Aided by a strong ensemble of actors, Piper's talents shone in every scene, none more so than where she is distraught over losing the love of her room mate. Ms. Perabo's performance was powerful, mesmerizing and the storyline thought provoking. It would be fair to say that the conclusion was heart-rending. It took some while for a degree of normalcy to return to one's life ~ a true indicator of the power of an actor's performance.
Although Ms. Perabo has featured in a couple of lead roles since this movie, in addition to her starring role in Covert Affairs (USA Network & Showcase Canada), I am bewildered as to why Piper has not garnered more headliner roles. Choose to watch Lost & Delirious to witness not only a first rate movie with depth, but to see an actress whose talents overflow the screen.

The DVD quality is good, however the DVD packaged is actually backwards and upside down. The product itself works well.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
