Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.

In the latest episode, Scott is joined by Steven and Antony from the Glass Onion: On John Lennon  podcast to chat about Kubrick, Mason and Sellers and a movie based on a very controversial novel

Join us we take a look at Stanley Kubrick’s ‘ Lolita’ starring Sue Lyon, James Mason, Shelley Winters and Peter Sellers. Is it a British movie?...You decide.


With a screenplay penned by the author himself, Stanley Kubrick brings Vladimir Nabokov's controversial tale of forbidden love to the screen. Humbert Humbert (James Mason) is a European professor who relocates to an American suburb, renting a room from lonely widow Charlotte Haze (Shelley Winters). Humbert marries Charlotte, but only to nurture his obsession with her comely teenage daughter, Lolita (Sue Lyon). After Charlotte's sudden death, Humbert has Lolita all to himself -- or does he?

“I want you to live with me and die with me and everything with me!”
