Lolita (13-Jun-1962)

Director: Stanley Kubrick

Writer: Vladimir Nabokov

From novel: Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

Music Composed and Conducted by: Nelson Riddle

Producer: James B. Harris

Keywords: Drama, May-September Romance

A professor obsessed with a 14-year-old girl marries the girl's mother as a pretext; being both in a relationship with Lolita and simultaneously being her guardian causes problems both logistical and emotional. Received an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay. Nabokov's novel is a difficult translation to film, and certain liberties were taken; for a more literal approach, see Adrian Lyne's Lolita (1997).
