About the Movie
Humber Humbert, a professor of French literature, travels to a small New England Town to take a teaching post, searching for lodging he visits the home of a single mother Charlotte and her 14 year old daughter Dolores (Lolita). Upon seeing Dolores Humbert is immediately smitten. Knowing his desire is forbidden though, he marries the clueless Charlotte in order to stay close to her daughter. An iconic adaptation of the Vladimir Nabokov Classic, starring Jeremy Irons and Dominique Swain, Lolita tells a disturbing tale of tortured and forbidden love.
a brilliant book finally becomes the movie it always should have been
I read the book my senior year of high school and never forgot it. I was a lolita in my younger years and I totally understand how such a situation could exist. It is a beautifully tragic love story, wonderfully written, perfectly acted. I am so glad it was finally made the way it always should have been. For the first time in my life I think a remake better than the original, simply because so much had to be left out of the original due to the constraints of the 1960's. I'm so glad they chose Jeremy Irons and Dominique Swain. They made the characters come to life. Great movie.
This is a must see for both Nabokov and Adrian Lynne fans. A more faithful adaptation than Kubrick's film!
Lolita light of my life, fire of my loins, my sin, my soul. Poetic Masterpiece.
People tend to stray away and scorn films of this kind of content but this film is absolutely beautiful in every category. Cinematography is excellent perhaps the best I've seen immortalized in a film, Acting is sensational, Jeremy irons is about as good of a narrator as Morgan Freeman. So many movie get hyped up by people and after others see the movies they are very disappointed because its was all overrated. I've seen this film more than 100 times and it preserves it beauty and poetic uniqueness very well over time. Someday this film will get the recognition it deserves as one of the greatest film ever made. Definitely a underrated masterpiece but make sure to watch it without prejudice to engulf the full beauty of this film.
