Abstract: »The present article tries to understand the Lolita myth and its adjustment to the cinema of the 21st century. The independent American film Hard Candy (David Slade, 2005) has been chosen to do so. While the film uses frequent resources traditionally attached to the Lolita myth it also incorporates brand new elements, inspired by postfeminism, postmodern cinema and popular media movements such as the girl power. Despite these innovations Hard Candy still depicts a myth in the core of contemporary contradictions and anxieties about sex, violence and paedophilia.« (Source: Zer)
