If you're going to enjoy this movie you'll have to learn to ignore some of the cringe-worthy dialogue -- it's adapted from a book (The Wives of Bath) and sounds like it. But even still, L&D is an exceedingly romantic tale of young love. The movie's center is Mouse (Mischa Barton), a shy new girl at an exclusive boarding school who begins rooming with the impulsive, aggressive Polly (Piper Perabo) and insecure Tori (Jessica Pare). In just a few days she discovers her roommates are lovers, a secret Mouse keeps to herself until their affair is discovered. At that point, Tori rejects Polly and begins dating a fella at a nearby boys' school, leaving Polly to self-destruct alone. The movie's a little silly, a little pretentious, and uses very heavy-handed metaphors. But with a very realistic love story, at least one super-hot sex scene, and great acting all around, it's worth a viewing for those who like tragic love stories.
