Lolita is a 1997 film directed by Adrian Lyne and was the second screen adaptation of the novel by Vladimir Nabokov. The film stars Jeremy Irons as Humbert Humbert and Dominique Swain (15 years old during filming) as Dolores "Lolita" Haze. Supporting roles are played by Melanie Griffith, as Charlotte Haze, and Frank Langella as Clare Quilty.

 

In 1947 Humbert Humbert, a European professor of French literature, travels to New Hampshire, in the United States, to take a teaching position. He rents a room in the home of widow Charlotte Haze, largely because he sees her adolescent daughter, Dolores (aged 12 in Nabokov's novel but seemingly slightly older in the film and variously called "Dolly" or "Lo"), while touring the house. Obsessed from boyhood with young girls of this age, whom he calls nymphets, partly because of an early sexual experience and tragic loss, Humbert marries Charlotte for the sake of access to her daughter.
