Product Description

Shy, unassuming teenager Mary 'Mouse' Bedford (Mischa Barton, The OC) is enrolled at a prestigious all girls' boarding school hidden away amongst lush countryside forest. Upon arrival, she is welcomed by her two roommates, the carefree and impressionable Tori (Jessica Paré, Wicker Park) and excitable, temperamental Paulie (Piper Perabo, Imagine Me And You). Mary soon discovers that Tori and Paulie are deeply in love with one another, yet when Tori's younger sister finds out, and threatens to break the secret to her friends and family, Tori breaks off the relationship. Unable to deal with losing the other half to her whole, Paulie will do anything to get her girlfriend back, even if it means risking her life.

A highly acclaimed follow-up to the award-winning Emporte-Moi, Lea Pool's Lost and Delirious, based on the novel The Wives Of Bath, is a powerful and disturbing look at first love which features a trio of young and talented actresses burning up the screen years before they went on to break Hollywood.

4.0 out of 5 stars About passion, love and growing up 1 Dec 2006
By RD VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is a wonderful movie about an all consuming love between Paulie and Tory who are roomates in a girls only boarding school. The two are also secret lovers until Tory's sister walks in on them in bed. Tory resorts to denying the whole thing for fear of the repercussions with her family and friends. However, Paulie is a very passionate young teenager in love and doesn't take the rejection well refusing to believe it was nothing and let go. This culminates into a dramatic ending which I feel was rather underdeveloped leading to the only (but significant) flaw I had with this movie.

'Mouse' is the other important character in the movie as she is new to boarding school and ends up sharing a room with Paulie and Tory. This makes her privy to the fact that the two girls are lovers but she slowly accepts it and becomes good friends with them. The breakup leaves her looking out for Paulie on Tory's behalf since she knows it'll hurt her deeply.

Above being a love story it is also a tale about 'Mouse' growing up and coming of age.

Great film, glad I took a leap in renting it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed, but haunting and beautiful 6 Mar 2004
By unlikely_heroine VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
"Lost and Delirious" is a little Canadian production that has made a name for itself as a "lesbian" film. As other reviewers have pointed out, it is less a study of sexuality, and more a depiction of how it can feel (whether the feelings are for someone of the same or opposite sex), to be passionately, desperately, hopelessly in love - the good side and, the very, very bad side.
The story of the film is supposed to be seen through the eyes of young Mary "Mouse" Bedford (Mischa Barton), who arrives at her all-girls' boarding school to discover her new roommates are, er, more than just very good friends. Although Mouse gives voiceovers and appears to be supposed to be our guide to what happens, the film strays from the true narrative idea by including many scenes in which the Mouse character is not present. That's because the true focus of this film is Pauline "Paulie" Oster, played by Piper Perabo, who gives the performance of her career to date. Although the script is uneven (and the screenwriter, perhaps recognising her shortcomings, begins to quote Shakespeare at length towards the end of the film), and gives Perabo some pretty bad lines, and though her character's behaviour tips right over into the downright melodramatic, Perabo is pretty impressive in this. Perhaps directed with a little more subtlety, it would have been a truly awesome performance; as it is, she is very, very good - and mesmerising any time she is on screen. By the end, I bet not one viewer really cares what happens to Mouse, the supposed narrator and central character, who happens to get the last word - all eyes will be on Paulie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Break From The Norm 23 Nov 2004
Format:DVD
It is so difficult these days to find a truly special film which deals with first love, true love and the expression of sexuality with uncommon sensitivity. Take Tipping the Velvet, which was a good book adapted into a TV series with the most ridiculous over-dramatisation. Lost and Delerious is such a far cry from this as to be an entirely new genre altogether.
The drama centres around Torie and Paulie, girlfriends and roommates and so deeply in love. Or so we think...When Torie and Paulie are caught in bed together by Torie's younger sister, it all begins to go haywire. Torie cuts herself off entirely from Paulie in an effort to convince not only her friends, but herself, that she's not gay. New roomie Mouse is left in the middle, although she doesn't actually do much, just stands and watched Paulie self-destruct.
Piper Perabo (Paulie) brings in a sterling performance, proving she has more talent than Coyote Ugly permitted her to show. Not many reviewers seem to compliment Jessica Pare in her role as Tori. True, Perabo has much more interest, dramatic moments and so on, but Pare has her time to shine as well. Lines which should sound corny ("I'm so lost without you, pete"), she can sincerely carry off, and that should not go without recognition.
It would be a mistake to see this film as no more than a "lesbian flick". Of course there's sex involved, lesbians do it too, you know. It's not porn and it's not reliant on the sex to maintain interest. This is a film truly worthy of commendation. If there was a criticism I had to make, it would be the fact that at times Paulie sounds over-desperate, and the ending is a little abrupt. That said, it is based on The Wife of Bath and has to follow some literary guidelines.
I would quite happily recommend this film to anyone and everyone I know. It's such a shame that it has been overlooked because it went straight to video. That doesn't make it unworthy of watching, I can assure you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulos 9 Dec 2008
Format:DVD
A movie for anyone who knows what it feels like to be completely in love but has had to hide their feelings away. This is a beautiful portrail of a romance between two girls at a bording school who have to keep their love for one another a secret. When Tori's sister barges in on her and paulie in bed together Tori tells everone that Paulie came on to her and in an attempt to prove to everyone she is not gay, she throws herself at the first guy she sees. Even though she is in love with Paulie, she is ashamed of being gay. Paulie then tries everything she can to win back her love with no holding back. A powerful and dramatic ending. Definitly a must see for all my fellow lesbians.
