When Anne Elliot turned down Captain Wentworth's proposal of marriage, she allowed herself to be persuaded by her snobbish family's conviction of his unworthiness. But now, after a separation of eight years, Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth are to meet again and the tables have turned. Her former lover's fortunes have prospered and he is now returned from a career at sea both eligible and affluent. Anne's father, Sir Walter Elliot of Kellynch Hall, has been forced to lease their home and move the family into a rather small abode in Bath. Just as Anne now recognizes the false values that persuaded her to reject Captain Wentworth, so she must accept that his heart now seems set upon the youth and beauty of the impetuous Louisa Musgrove.

Elizabeth R ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Multiple languages and held by 587 libraries worldwide
"I may not be a lion, but I am a lion's cub, and I have a lion's heart!" said Elizabeth I. Elizabeth I, known as the Virgin Queen, was the daughter of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, and reigned as Queen of England from 1558-1603. This mini-series dramatizes her life from her ascension to the throne at age 25 to her death forty-four years later. Elizabeth refused to ever marry, exploiting her status as a tool in foreign policy, and using courtship as diplomacy, a theme explored at some length in this depiction. The drama brings to life her brilliant advisors, including William Cecil and Francis Walsingham, and great sailors Francis Drake and Walter Raleigh. Delves into the life of the monarch who made England into a world power, and whose time on the throne is now remembered as the "Elizabethan Age."

Vincent & Theo ( Visual )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 419 libraries worldwide
Inside and outside the claustrophobic art world of Paris in the late 19th century, two Dutch brothers try to make their mark. Vincent can only paint and rage. Soft souled, black-toothed, he spends his life in a series of barren rooms, taking his work as far as it can go. Theo can only try--mostly in vain for the length of both their lives--to sell his brother's work. Theo vicariously participates in his brother's art while working, marrying, and contracting syphilis like a 'normal' bourgeoisie. The brothers became the work: one brother who painted, and the other brother who believed that to support the painting was the most important thing he could possibly do with his lifetime.

A rueful, romantic tale of the awfulness of life in an ancient English public school in the 1930's. At its center is the friendship of Guy Bennett (Rupert Everett), a dark, Byronically handsome young man, who accepts the horrors of the school system in return for its rewards, and Tommy Judd (Colin Firth), who attends the school against his will, refuses to play the gentleman's game, and is already a Marxist. Guy falls in love with a handsome fellow student named Harcourt (Cary Elwes), and the student prefects use the evidence to blackball Bennett from becoming one of the school leaders in his senior year.

The good soldier ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 238 libraries worldwide
In the decade preceding World War I, two wealthy, handsome couples--English Captain Edward Ashburnham and his wife Leonora, and American John Dowell and his wife Florence--meet at a German spa and forge an immediate bond. Through nine seasons at various spas, the splendid foursome lives elegant, perfect lives. But nothing is as it seems. As John says at one point, "My wife and I knew the Captain and his wife Mrs. Ashburnham as well as was possible to know anybody. And yet we knew nothing about them at all." The film explores the power games, class snobbery, sexual lies, and lack of intimacy that boil beneath the placid, pristine exteriors the upper classes show the world. The story is presented in flashback, a literary technique Madox Ford helped popularize.
