The events that led to this standoff began four years earlier. Middle aged Humbert, a European, arrives in the United States where he has secured at job at Beardsley College in Beardsley, Ohio as a Professor of French Literature. Before he begins his post in the fall, he decides to spend the summer in the resort town of Ramsdale, New Hampshire. He is given the name of Charlotte Haze as someone who is renting a room in her home for the summer. He finds that Charlotte, widowed now for seven years, is a woman who puts on airs. Among the demonstration of those airs is throwing around the name of Clare Quilty, a television and stage script writer, who came to speak at her women’s club meeting and who she implies is now a friend. Those airs also mask being lonely, especially as she is a sexually aggressive and liberated woman. Humbert considers Charlotte a proverbial “joke” but decides to rent the room upon meeting Charlotte’s provocative daughter, Dolores Haze – more frequently referred to as Lolita – who he first spots in a bikini tanning in the back yard. He is immediately infatuated with Lolita, with who he becomes obsessed in a sexual manner despite her age, she being just into her teens. He will also learn that Charlotte has the exact same feelings for him. While Charlotte does whatever she can to be alone with Humbert, Humbert does the same with Lolita. As the summer progresses, Humbert, based on the circumstances, decides to enter into a relationship with Charlotte just to be near Lolita. In that new arrangement, Humbert has to figure out how to achieve his goal of being with Lolita with Charlotte out of the way. As things begin to go Humbert’s way, he is unaware that Charlotte is not the only thing standing in his way between him and Lolita, that other thing being Lolita’s possible interest in other boys, and other members of the male sex, young or old, who may have their own designs on Lolita.
Plot: Humbert Humbert is a middle-aged British novelist who is both appalled by and attracted to the vulgarity of American culture. When he comes to stay at the boarding house run by Charlotte Haze, he soon becomes obsessed with Lolita, the woman’s teenaged daughter.

Humorous, disturbing, and everything in between!
I think Stanley Kubrick was the only director who had any ideas of how to tackle a film version of Lolita. I also believe that he was the only director who could have succeeded, and I believe he did succeed. This film was everything I could have expected it to be, and maybe even a little more.
Shelley Winters’ performance was wonderful! James Mason delivered a strong effort in a very difficult part to play. Peter Sellers was Peter Sellers, four or five times throughout the movie, but that’s Peter Sellers, and that’s why I am really starting to admire his work. The real surprise performance in this movie, however, came from Sue Lyon in the title role. Her intensity was incredible. She seemed perfectly natural as a teenage girl enjoying the attention of older men, or just men in general. You could really see the wheels turning in her head as she schemed her way from one situation to the other. Some have criticized that her Lolita was “too old” in comparison to the novel’s Lolita. One could make that judgment, however, what twelve year old actress would have been able to provide the emotional depth required for the part? Let’s face it, in literary adaptations, some license must be allowed. All in all, I thought it was a very good movie, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the work of Stanley Kubrick and/or Peter Sellers.
Nothing Like You’ve Heard – Nothing, Period.
This was supposed to be so sexual and so controversial, and I can see why the “controversy” with an older man getting sexually attracted and involved with a teenager but there is very sexuality in this movie….just implied, and very little of anything happens in this film.
Sue Lyon, in her first shot, is very alluring lying on her side in a bikini but after that she has the appearance of any other good-looking teen and nothing extraordinary….so if men are looking to be titillated by this film, go elsewhere.
In fact, an annoying and shrill Shelly Winters is seen quite a bit, too much so rather than Lyon. Peter Sellers, with an American accent, is good.
Overall, this movie is Boring, yes – with a capital ‘B.” People today would laugh at any of this being called “controversial.” Just because it had that label and Stanley Kubrick directed, people automatically overrate this movie terribly. Don’t believe me? Go ahead: rent it. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
