movie - Lolita


movie title:

main cast:
James Mason as Humbert Humbert
Shelley Winters as Charlotte Haze
Sue Lyon as Lolita Haze
Peter Sellers as Clare Quilty

brit prof decides to come to america to teach, and stays in a boarding house run by a middle aged widow who has a hot daughter. mom wants prof but prof wants girl triangle. mom marries prof and finds out he is into her daughter. but before she does any damage, she is killed in an accident. prof ends up with girl as her guardian but he is more than that, obviously. but girl engineers a deception and escapes with the help of the one she really prefers (loves?) - clare quilty.

my score: 5 out of 10.
supposed to be a R(A) sort but since it was shot in 1962, the script was massively watered down and as a result, suffered. no R, A or otherwise - nil sex scenes between older man and young girl. i guess a dated movie is a dated movie. and should be left undisturbed to rest in its grave.

why you should watch it:
i watched it to save you the trouble, so do not watch this movie!
