Lolita movie scene

Sue Lyon is Lolita.

Two Stanley Kubrick movie classics made their Blu-ray debuts on May 31, 2011, from Warner Home Video: Lolita and Barry Lyndon.

Lolita, Kubrick’s 1962 film adaptation of Vladimir Nabokov’s masterful novel, and Barry Lyndon, his sprawling and gorgeous period piece based on the William Thackeray novel and set in 18th Century England, each carry the suggested retail price of $19.98.

The films also are part of Warner’s Stanley Kubrick: Limited Edition Collection on Blu-ray, a nine-film, 10-disc collection that contains high-definition versions of every film the director made since 1960. In addition to Lolita and Barry Lyndon, the set features A Clockwork Orange 40th Anniversary Edition, Spartacus, Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut. The collection was issued the same day.

The same group of films were available on DVD in the Stanley Kubrick: The Essential Collection ($74.92 SRP), which includes a 40-page softcover book.
