Is this from a film?

Found this movie still (?) on Tumblr. Where is it from?

This image popped up on my Tumblr feed today and I was wondering where it's from. I just find it very quiet and kind of pretty, so I'm curious. My friend who reblogged it has no clue either. Is it from a film or tv show? I tried searching with TinEye, but got nothing.

Thanks in advance!

Hmm. The Piano, maybe? That looks like Anna Paquin.

I believe that is from the Jeremy Irons version of Lolita. Kind of creepy compilation video here.

Brooks Shields in Pretty Baby?

(I can't believe I just GIS'ed that from work. Dammit.)

That image is at about 3:20 on the video I linked to above.

It's definitely Dominique Swain in 1997's Lolita.

The film is available by mail through Netflix (so is Kubrick's).

@dhartung: Thanks, but I don't think it's a movie I'd like to watch. I was just curious about where the photo came from.
