dir. Stanley Kubrick, US/UK, 1962, 35mm, b/w, 152 min.

“Staggeringly great performances, direction, writing and mood.” – David Lynch

Stanley Kubrick’s film adaptation of Vladimir Nabakov’s controversial novel remains one of the director’s finest films. The story of a middle-aged professor who becomes obsessed with a young, precocious teenage girl spirals toward a tragic conclusion where seduction overcomes the all rational thought.


David Lynch film programming is in conjunction with David Lynch: The Unified Field at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA), the first major U.S. museum exhibition of PAFA alumnus David Lynch, on view September 13, 2014 to January 11, 2015. Organized in close collaboration with the artist, the exhibition features over 80 paintings and drawings from all periods of Lynch’s career. It includes rarely-seen early work from Lynch's time in Philadelphia (1965-70), a critical period in his creative development. The William Penn Foundation is the presenting sponsor of David Lynch: The Unified Field. Follow @PAFAcademy on social media and join the conversation with #PAFADavidLynch.
