This is an Excellent film and is greatly adapted to DVD. It's based on the novel by Vladimir Nabokov, and basically it's a tragic comedy of obsession - "Lolita", the hilarious,whilst disturbing, but suspenseful and profoundly moving story of a forbidden love affair and its extremely shattering consequences.
Humbert (Jeremy Irons) is a remarkable man with a poisonous wound: the painful memory of a fated childhood love and a haunting urge to rediscover its lost passion.
When he encounters Charlotte Haze (Melanie Griffith), a widow with romantic plans, its her nymph daughter, Lolita (Dominique Swain), who ultimately wins Humbert's affection, testing him and satisfying his secret desires with disastrous results.
This is a vry moving film and it honestly does make you stop and think about things in a different perspective! I first saw it on Cable a few months back and had to get it on DVD, it's Absolutley Fabulous!!!!
