Critic Reviews

  1. Piper Perabo is a revelation -- and Barton is maturing into a sensitive, subtle performer with a marvelously expressive face.
  2. 60
    Blessed with a lovely score and strong acting, but crippled by an awkward, mawkish script.
  3. 50
    Perabo gives a fairly impressive and flashy performance, even when the script descends into melodrama.
  4. The movie is beautiful to look at (lensed by Pierre Gill) as are the girls, but it takes its clunky message so seriously that it often verges on silliness.
  5. Will divide audiences between those whose hearts have been tugged into going along with the picture way past common sense and those who find it impossible to accept the film's credibility-defying developments.
  6. It has a frenetic, unsettled edginess that chafes against its serene, woodsy, upscale private school setting.
  7. 40
    A startling letdown after (Léa Pool's) plaintive, understated coming-of-age tale "Set Me Free."
  8. 40
    It works in so many ways except for the script, which sounds laughable. And sadly, when Lost and Delirious trips over its own two feet, it is laughable. It needs to follow Paulie's advice and rage more.

(Note: The 'and' randomly gets removed if you take out the 'Delirious' part in the title). Not fun to watch because you're going to randomly get lost knowing nothing about this movie or hardly learning any lessons by this movie. Full Review »
