Synopsis >

Oscar-winning filmmaker Stanley Kubrick (A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, 2001: A Space Odyssey) directs this dark, comedic adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov's classic novel about a middle-aged university professor who becomes so infatuated with a 14-year-old girl that he marries her mother in order to stay close to her. Starring Oscar-nominee James Mason (North by Northwest) as smitten professor Humbert Humbert, Oscar-winner Shelly Winters (The Poseidon Adventure, A Place in the Sun) as Lolita's vulnerable mother, Oscar-nominee Peter Sellers (The Pink Panther, Being There) as a degenerate playwright whose attraction to Lolita fuels a fatal rivalry, and sultry Sue Lyon (The Night of the Iguana) as the sexually precocious Lolita. Nabokov received an Oscar nomination for his outstanding screenplay.
