Lost-and-DeliriousLost and Delirious is based on the novel The Wives of Bath by Susan Swan. Let me start by saying that Lea Pool changed the book significantly enough to make a good movie out of a terrible book.

The story is that of three seniors at the Perkins Girls College. Mary, a new girl, joins the boarding school and rooms with Tory and Pauline.

Tory and Pauline are romantically involved and when Tory’s sister discovers that they are lovers, all hell breaks loose.

This is a story about growing up, discovering first love and the sadness that a broken heart can bring.

The Characters and Plot

The characters are memorable and the plot is filled with angst and drama, just the way I like it.

The Technical Side

It is a beautifully made film, reminiscent of a fairytale.

The Pros

A great film. Definitely a must watch, especially if you like angst filled movies.

The Cons

The biggest con about many great lesbian films is that the film makers never go on to make more great films.

The Conclusion

Well worth watching. One of my favourites.

Sheena is the founder of The Lesbian Review.

She discovered lesbian fiction when she was 19. Radclyffe and Karin Kallmaker soon became favourite authors and she spent a large part of her hard earned income on shipping books from Amazon.com to her home in South Africa.

Over the years she became frustrated with purchasing mediocre lesbian fiction feeling like it was a waste of her money and time. And so she decided to share only the best books and movies with lesbians who are looking for only the best. And so, The Lesbian Review was born
