The remake of the 1962 Lolita has a lot of great scenes that will keep you riveted to your seat until the credits roll. The first view of the nymphet Lolita, played by 14-year old Dominique Swain, is of her lounging in the garden next to a lawn sprinkler. What middle-aged professor would get obsessed, or at least, stop and stare? The most provocative scene in the movie, however, is when Lolita nuzzles up right next to Humbert Humbert’s crotch and inches her hand up his inner thigh while she asks for a $2 allowance. This version is by far the most controversial version of the novel dealing with the taboo and touchy subject of of pedophilia and underage sexuality.
