Their characters may feel lost, but Ms. Perabo and Ms. Paré rank among the finds of the year.

Barely skirting the lip of the ridiculous.

Pool and Thompson have turned a tough-minded, solid narrative into a campy piece of kitsch that panders to teenage angst.

Evokes the intimacies of teenage girls with unusual delicacy, and Perabo's performance is a geyser of emotion.

Equally earnest and unconvincing.

Houston Chronicle

Its treatment of the operatic highs and lows of young love and heartbreak feels right emotionally, even though the film tells its story rather awkwardly.

Pool is an assured director, not afraid to explore the darker side of adolescence with integrity.

Isn't it possible to be true to one's heart without self-destructing?

Stirred within me memories of that season in adolescence when the heart leaps up in passionate idealism -- and inevitably mingles it with sexual desire.

Weighty stuff for the Bring It On or Legally Blonde summer crowd. For the rest, Lost and Delirious is a welcome antidote.

Pool can't avoid force-feeding us metaphors -- avian to Shakespearean -- whenever she wants.

Pool captures the crazed urgency of first love -- the feeling of a passion so fierce that even a disapproving society can't crush it.

It's a good, slick film, if less interesting then Pool's earlier, more personal French-language efforts.

[Pool is] working with a bigger budget, glossier production values and a much dumber script ... than usual.

The film's title refers to its heroine but ends up describing the movie itself.

It often has a camp ludicrousness, evoking an 'Afterschool Special' inspired by the pages of Penthouse Forum.

Much of the time Pool seems lost herself, resorting to clichés, redundancy, and dead-end allegory.

The people who made this movie apparently aren't satisfied just to let you see something when they can talk about it too.
Top Critic

Cumulatively excruciating in its mawkish symbolism ... quasifeminist posturing (men bad!), and strenuous heterophobia.
Top Critic

A thoughtful and compassionate story of a young girl.
