South African Gay & Lesbian Film Festival
Title: Lost & Delirious
Director: L�a Pool
Specs: Canada 2001 video 100min
Set in a posh boarding school, this is an evocative tale of first love. Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly) plays intense protagonist Paulie, a Romeo-gone-dark over her consuming love for room-mate Tori (Jessica Par�). Though deeply connected, both physically and soulfully, their secret lovemaking is brought to an end when they are caught by schoolmates.
Tori, from a strict, religious background asserts her heterosexuality with a vengance, in an effort to be "normal" and stop the rumours. A bittersweet tale of teenage love with convincing performances from a young cast. Lost & Delirious was the most popular lesbian feature at OIA in 2002.
