Rupert by David Williamson( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his latest play, the author tackles the rise and rise of ex-Australian citizen and one of the planet's most powerful, influential and feared men, Rupert Murdoch. Spanning most of Murdoch's lifetime--from his early student days at Oxford to the most recent phone hacking scandal that rocked News Corp.--the author asks who the real Rupert Murdoch is and tries to uncover what makes this complex and fascinating character tick. In the process the author peels back the façade and we glimpse the character of an 'apex predator' who almost single-handedly built a media empire that spans the entire globe
Lantana by Ray Lawrence( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lantana: a noxious and troublesome weed with dense and spiky undergrowth, sometimes cultivated for its colorful, aromatic flowers (film website). Like the plant, this film is a thicket: lovely and sweet smelling on its surface, dense and thorny beneath. In Lantana, a quartet of married couples from different strata of urban Australian life--wealthy Valerie and John, the middle-class Zats, working-class Jane and her estranged husband Pete, and struggling, just barely working-class Nik and Paula--are connected by psychiatrist Valerie, whose disappearance is the event around which these couples lives begin to revolve. The delicately layered storyline reminds viewers of three essential truths about human existence: No one is exactly what he or she seems; actions generate ripples that reach far beyond the actions themselves; and life does go on, no matter what, but it is never the same as before. Before what? Before everything
