Performance

Director: Lea Pool. Starring: Piper Perabo, Jessica Paré, Mischa Barton, Jackie Burroughs, Graham Greene, Mimi Kuzyk Studio: Lions Gate Films Léa Pool’s (Set Me Free) new film Lost and Delirious vividly captures the insular world of the private girls school and the pangs of intense first love. Young Mouse Bradford (Mischa Barton) is sent to an all-girls' boarding school by her distant, unconcerned parents. At first lost, she soon finds friends in her two senior roommates: zingy and ferocious Paulie (Piper Perabo) and charming Tory (Jessica Paré). The three become close friends, during which time Mouse realizes Tory and Paulie are sharing a secret, passionate affair. Mouse accepts this, but the rest of school isn’t so open-minded, and when Tory’s younger sister catches the two, things begin to spiral downward. Tory, determined to fit into her family’s ideals, starts dating boys while Paulie goes ballistic, fueled to reclaim her lover no matter what it takes. Adapted from Susan Swan’s turbulent novel "The Wives of Bath" by screenwriter Judith Thompson, Pool’s first English-language film is a steamy, accomplished and ambitious follow-up to her understated, autobiographical Set Me Free. Thompson’s script removes some of the novel’s more violent and fantastical elements but retains its taut emotional core, Romeo and Juliet-like passion, and a whole lot of tension. There’s certainly a heaping helping of feverish, gorgeously shot sex between the attractive young leads – so much so that a Sundance programmer referred to Lost and Delirious as “eye candy for girls.” And Pool proves herself to be a director Hollywood should part waves for.

I just watched this film and I am in a state of awe. Not only is the movie a 5 star, but the sound track is one of the best I've ever heard. This is not your traditional love story - it is mournful and wrenching, and a work of art as well as a work of the heart. Watch it! Read More

Editors Note
Note The story of three roommates at a private school for girls, LOST AND DELIRIOUS centers on Mary (Mischa Barton), who is shy and lonely, having spun on a downward spiral ever since the death of her mother three years before. But when she arrives at prep school and meets her new roommates, Pauline (Piper Perabo) and Tory (Jessica Pare)--fun, happy girls--Mary begins to open up. But just as Mary begins to come out of her shell, she discovers that her roommates are lovers, and, not knowing how to talk about it, she bites her tongue and is left feeling more isolated and alone than ever before. To complicate matters, Pauline and Tory break up. Tory insists that she likes boys. And Pauline becomes an emotional wreck--acting out and changing into a dangerously fragile time bomb. With its complicated plot, delicate issues, and convincing adolescent characters, LOST AND DELIRIOUS is a powerful and disturbing look at first love. The first English-language film from director Lea Pool, the film is based on the novel THE WIVES OF BATH by Susan Swan.
