Movie propaganda

See it and make up your own mind.

When school teacher Humbert Humbert (Jeremy Irons) marries his landlady, Charlotte Haze (Melanie Griffith), it's purely to get close to his daughter Dolores "Lolita" Haze (Dominique Swain) who reminds him of the childhood sweetheart he lost in tragic circumstances.

But Humbert's forbidden love becomes an obsession that threatens to engulf them both and change their lives irrevocably. With a sumptuous score from Enrico Morricone (The mission) and a stunning performance from Dominique this classic loss of innocence fable has never been so faithfully brought to the screen with every beguiling, disturbing and haunting moment intact.
