Elizabeth R by Glenda Jackson( Visual )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 644 WorldCat member 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 by Robert Altman( Visual )

20 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 532 WorldCat member 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

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
