Trivia

After a few years of playing adult roles, this was the first of three high school roles in a row for Piper Perabo. She was cast as a teenager, although she was already in her mid-20's at the time. She'd already been a bartender in Coyote Ugly (2000) and a government agent in The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle (2000), amongst other roles. See more »

Quotes

Tori: I mean I love Paulie, you know that I do. She's my best friend in the world and probably the only person that I will ever love like, like in the way that... Cleopatra
[crying]
Tori: . And to hurt her, its like I'm choking, like I'm not in the breathing world. But there's this life that I am supposed to live, this dream that my mother and father had for me and even though it is killing me Mary, I can't ever be with Paulie ever, not ever, ever again.

A much deeper film than expected
9 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I only decided to see this film simply because I liked Piper Perabo in 'Coyote Ugly', an enjoyable but 'lightweight' film. I watched 'Lost and Delirious' for the first time last evening and I was totally blown away by Piper's performance which surprised me, taking into account the fact that the film didn't exactly get rave reviews. It was a far deeper film than I expected it to be and I will need to watch it several times to appreciate its full impact. (I never manage to fully appreciate a film first time round!)The clever parallels drawn between Paulie's character and the bird of prey's plight are cleverly handled, although I thought it was made a little too obvious when she began to refer to herself as 'the raptor'. I felt this was unnecessary; the viewer should have been left to make that link for him or herself. The increasing tension which draws the viewer inexorably towards the climax of the film is almost unbearable. I felt myself starting to dread the end of the film, fearing its almost inevitable end. IMHO this is a masterful piece of movie-making. Miss it and miss out!
