  • Rating: R
Love, romance, and sex intermix in the erotic drama Lost and Delirious starring Piper Perabo, Mischa Barton, and Jessica Pare. Lion's Gate has done a nice job on this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. While a small amount of edge enhancement and grain show up once in a while, overall, this is a bright-looking picture with natural fleshtones and even black levels. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and is very well-mixed. There are some instances of surround sound usage during the film, though this is a relatively subdued track with music and background noise being filtered through the front and rear speakers. All aspects of the dialogue, effects, and music are free of any excessive distortion or hiss. Also included on this disc are English and Spanish subtitles. The only extra feature available on this editon of Lost and Delirious is a theatrical trailer for the film presented in a 1.33:1 full frame version.

Lost and Delirious
Three schoolgirls learn about the joys, sorrows, and varieties of love in this drama based on the novel The Wives of Bath by Susan Swan. Mary (Mischa Barton) is a quiet girl who is still recovering from the death of her mother. Mary's father and new stepmother, who are blind to her emotional needs, send her away to an all-girls college, where Mary becomes fast friends with her new roommates, sophisticated Paulie (Piper Perabo) and worldly Tory (Jessica Pare). But Mary soon discovers that Paulie and Tory are more than just friends, and have begun to pursue a passionate physical relationship. While initially puzzled by their lesbian leanings, Mary remains close friends with both of them; Tory's sister is not so open minded, however, and threatens to tell their parents about Tory's affair. Afraid and confused, Tory quickly breaks off her romance with Paulie and takes up with Jake (Luke Kirby), a student at a nearby boys' school. Paulie is heartbroken, and desperately struggles to win Tory back by writing her epic-length poems on the subject of love and loss. Paulie also finds a metaphor for her wounded heart as she finds an injured bird in the woods and struggles to restore it to health; in addition, she discovers an understanding soul in the person of Fay Vaughn (Jackie Burroughs), one of her teachers. Lost and Delirious was the first English-language feature for Québecois filmmaker Lea Pool; the film received its world premiere at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
