She ruined the movie. Jeremy irons was an absolutely perfect humbert - but she just totally didn't get the character at all. I suppose it wasn't all her fault, the director probably had a lot to do with it. They just made her into a slut which she absolutely wasn't at all in the book. Such a shame as they got so many things right but they failed when it came to the main character.

Dominique Swain is already 17 years old in the movie and that *HUMBERT* is already 49 years old, but in the movie lolita is 14 yrs old and Humbert is somethinnn 50+ yrs old

She was perfect for this role she has tenacity and wit they actually had the balls enough to cast her as the child Lolita actually was...they weren’t afraid to blurr those lines. I mean I really fell in love with the story line and his love for her as wicked and sick as it was....one of the most haunting love stories I’ve ever encountered

I always remembered Dominique Swain in really gritty and difficult roles, she definitely deserves more recognition. Don’t care for the movie Lolita for obvious reasons but she’s a great actress especially for being her first movie.
To Serve Man (5 months ago)
The screen test is more believable than the MOVIE. I like the actress Dominique; wish her well. BUT she matured too much between the tests and the movie. (I wonder if being hired itself matured her mind and thus body.) I acknowledge the casting difficulty; but still -- actress too mature (and lacking some 'chemistry' [at least as a blonde]). And I acknowledge the difficult role: young actress needs to understand much about women and men and how to be a precocious 'innocence abused' `tween AND a corrupt backstory (never specifically divulged) person. I would have cast an adult actress who was simply a short, under developed "premie"-baby [stunted]. ...If one could find one with the acumen to get who Lolita was and what the story is actually about.

I don't understand how it's acceptable and legal to make kids do sexual roles like these They made her get naked in front of a whole cast and maybe her father or whomever was with her And to make her believe that she a step daughter who is sexually abused and kissing an adult This all wrong really wrong I feel sorry for the children how their parents do anything for the sake of money

I haven't seen this version but from most people are saying she was 14 when it was filmed. I didn't know she had to be naked either, which seems a little unnecessary.

It never really broke because this movie was much criticized at the time it was released. It has been censored everywhere if I remember correctly ... she accepted this perilous role of young hot girl and this image has stuck to her skin. She grew up but watch the movies in which she plays, it's sexy scenes, without interest. That said, if Lolita would be released in 2012 this film would have been better seen since Lana Del Rey (just see the girls who say adore this film because the songs and aesthetics are sweet) ... it's a beautiful film that was misunderstood and that's why Dominique flopped and the movie with ... Jeremy Irons is a regular at controversial movies, it did not impact

+UltimateC2020 "she was chosen out of 2,500 girls to play the title role" ...only after Natalie Portman refused the role. Lyne wanted Portman, and Portman politely told him to go fuck himself. Now Portman is a huge movie star, and Dominique Swain is a washed-up alcoholic pissing her career away on starring in shitty made-for-tv movies.
Natalie D (2 years ago)
Hmm, maybe your right. Its just Dominique was born in 1980 and the film was released 1997 (when she was 17), so I presumed her to be 16-17 during filming. Regardless, there would have been a lot of legal work involved!

I just don't think you could ever make a book like Lolita into a movie and get the true effect
To Serve Man (5 months ago)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzM6K_0hjaY A book allows one to draw their own characters and chemistry. A film connects the dots, preventing the observers' minds from doing that. As cinema tho it was beautiful and haunting. The screen test is more believable than the MOVIE. I like the actress Dominique; wish her well. BUT she matured too much between the tests and movie's filming. (I wonder if being hired itself matured her mind and thus body and vibe.) I acknowledge the casting difficulty; but still -- actress too mature (and lacking some 'chemistry' [at least as a blonde]). And I acknowledge the difficult role: young actress needs to understand much about women and men and how to be an 'innocence abused' `tween AND a precocious vixen built by a corrupt backstory (never specifically divulged). Casting has to find just the right girl. I would have cast a young adult actress who was simply a short, under developed "premie"-baby [stunted]. ...If one could find one with the acumen to get who Lolita et al was and what the story is actually about... A weak, oblivious man's road to Perdition [a'la Carmen] in a _tragic irony_ tale. (One where in standard Nabokov fashion a female is psychologically above and 'colder' than her suitor; so much so in Lolita that even a young girl (tho probably previously groomed) is thus endowed.)

Lolita is about RAPE. I'm so tired of people playing it out as a love story with some hot teen seductress, she was some frumpy teen who was raped form the time she was 12 to 15. The fact that people romanize it in such ways is absolutely disgusting. She's a little girl not a sex symbol if anything she's a symbol of how prominent rape culture is in society.
