Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Child Bride was the original release title for the British Charles Bronson vehicle Lola (which in some areas bore a third title, Twinky). Bronson plays a middle-aged author who falls in love with 16-year-old Susan George. Their subsequent marriage causes such friction with George's family that she and Bronson are compelled to move from London to New York. Here the marriage is roundly condemned by Bronson's family. Before this can be ironed out, Bronson and George realize that their marriage was a mistake from the get-go, and they gradually drift apart. Filmed in 1969, Lola didn't receive a widespread release until 1971.
