What begins as a sweet and succinct love story quickly shifts to a disturbing and unsettled emotional whirlwind becoming rather lost and delirious itself in this independent Canadian film by director Lea Pool. In a girls' Catholic school, vivacious vixen Piper Perabo turns unstable tough girl in an Angelina Jolie rebel-without-a-clue kind of way. She falls deeply in love with her plaid-clad closeted roommate while a shy and sheltered third wheel gets caught in the middle. Once rumors spread of this lesbian couple, the insecure girlfriend tries to prove her heterosexuality, leaving her codependent lover on the fast track to Nutsville. This film adaptation of Susan Swan's novel provides a refreshing look at love going beyond the boundaries of the sexes; however, the dark, angst-ridden conclusion unravels too rapidly and randomly, despite fair warning from the title.
Director: Lea Pool
Cast: Piper Perabo, Jessica Paré and Mischa Barton
