Take a touch of Shakespeare, a dash of drama, and the passion of first loves, and you'll have "Lost and Delirious," the stunning film by Canadian filmmaker, Léa Pool. Based on the novel, "The Wives of Bath" by Susan Swan, the film follows the lives of three very different boarding school roommates: shy and unassuming Mary "Mouse" Bradford (Mischa Barton, The Sixth Sense, TV's The O.C.), the striking and rakish rebel, Paulie (Piper Perabo, Coyote Ugly), and beautiful, but privileged Tory (Jessica Paré).
Leaving behind a life filled with sadness since the death of her mother, Mouse is quickly embraced by her new roommates and discovers a sense of belonging for the first time in her life. Dubbed one of the "lost girls" by Paulie, she is mesmerized by Paulie's bold and rebellious nature. She also finds her roommates to be more than friends, as Paulie and Tory's late-night rendezvous and moments of whispered passion become part of her daily existence.
Alas, nothing is forever, and the newfound peace Mouse has come to enjoy is soon shattered when Tory and Paulie are discovered, their relationship exposed. Faced with the possibility of her family finding out, Tory panics and abruptly ends the relationship, going to the extreme of fabricating lies and embracing a relationship with a boy from a neighboring school. All the while, Tory professes to Paulie she will never love anyone like she loves her, but it's time they "grew out of it."
Tory's betrayal is nothing short of devastating to Paulie, who loves with all her heart and sees Tory as the only person who has ever loved her.Read more ›
Lost and delirious is a very beautiful and unique film, which deals with the implications of love. The film captures what love really is, an all-encompassing,life-affirming feeling. I truly, madly, deeply recommend this film.
When Mouse, young introvert still greiving her mothers death, arrives at her new boarding school, she doesn't hold out much hope of enjoying herself. At first, there seems to be no real redeeming qualities of her new environment, then she meets her roommates; Victoria and Pauline, who acting as surragate sisters take mouse under their wing, giving her all the support she needs. When Tory and Paulie are found to be lovers, everyone's worlds start to crummble. Tory, terrified of being outted to her family, breaks up with Paulie. Paulie takes this devastatingly hard ( in such an artisticlly beautiful way). And Mouse is left to play stablizing crutch to Paulie. In the end we all find out how far love can drive you, and Mouse finds the strength to behold her mother's memory.
I thought I had seen Piper Perabo act before (Coyote Ugly, The Adventures of Rocky and Bulwinkle), but obviously those films were not worthy of her talent. She brought the character of Pauline alive so convincingly that I found myself crying over her pain as though it were my own.
This is for sure the best movie I've ever seen.(I've seen alot)
I am sure my family is ready to declare me insane because I keep randomly spouting lines from this movie.(it has had that much of an effect)I watched this at least 8 times in 3 days. I hope others will enjoy it as much as I have.
GREAT ACTING, GREAT CINEMATOGRAPHY,GREAT STORY,...GREAT MOVIE!!!
Tori and Paulie are deeply in love, easy and relaxed with each other and passionate about each other. Paulie is the strength in the relationship protecting her woman. Tori fears family disapproval and cuts off the woman she loves. Paulie fights to win back her lover against impossible odds. The movie is deeply sad, is well acted (brilliantly in the case of Perabo - this woman will be a mega-star) and is an emotional roller coaster. To quote the author Carole Taylor - "Love conquers nothing. Fear conquers all" (from "A Third Story"). For L&D fans, the music "Beautiful" is by Me'Shell Ndegeocello from the CD "Bitter". The movie is based on the book "The Wives of Bath" by Susan Swan. This movie is a must for anyone (of either sex) who loves women. Of my 200 DVD collection, this one I could not survive without. The quote of the movie: - "I am not a lesbian, I am Paulie and I love Tori". This is romance at its finest (and saddest)if you watch it a dozen times you will find more nuances and still wish you could make it ok for them - It deserves to be recognised as the classic romance that it is. BUY IT.

This is a movie about love and about how it could end up if we turn our heads on our children who need help. Even if our children are a little different than the NORM. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Becky Anne
Had a ton of potential but doesn't deliver. Giving it even 1 star is being generous. Had it been what it promised it would have been good but it isn't.Published 14 months ago by jadesun33
Eager to see this one. I love Piper Perabo in other things I have seen her in, so this should be a good story. Definitely sounded intriguing. Arrived in perfect condition.Published 14 months ago by Pat Calvert
