    I had the extreame pleasure of receiving an advance copy of this excellent independant film.
    Here's a plot summary from the IMDB
    Lost and Delirious is the story of three adolescent girls' first love, their discovery of sexual passion, and their search for identities. Set in a posh, private boarding school surrounded by luxuriant, green forest, Lost and Delirious moves swiftly from academic routine, homesickness, and girlish silliness to the darker region of lover's intrigue.

    My quick thoughts on the disc. Amazing movie, excellent video, exceptional audio and a handful of extras. A must purchase if your a fan of the film.

    Excellent movie.. A little too contrived in some places, but a compelling watch nonetheless.

    And you will be sorely disappointed. I saw the DVD at Future Shop, and whoop dee doo, it's freaking P&S. I was apoplectic, I really want to buy this, but there's NO WAY IN HELL I'm getting anything but widescreen. I mean, what the hell are they thinking? Did they just do a dump from the VHS master? Every time we gain ground, we lose more ground. It's slipping away from us...

    EDIT: When I checked out the FS website, it says WS, but the reviewer says the box said P&S, but it was actually WS. Maybe it's just a misprint on the box after all. I'll make them check when I pop into FS tomorrow.

    I'm the reviewer and the disc is 1.85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen
    As for the transfer. It's actually quite good and very representive of what I saw in the theater.
    It is simply a labelling error. The disc I have and received from Seville is the exact same as the ones at Futureshop
