Capote by Bennett Miller( Visual )

37 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 2,631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1959, Truman Capote was a popular writer for The New Yorker. He learns about the horrific and senseless murder of a family of four in Holcomb, Kansas. Inspired by the story, Capote and his partner, Harper Lee, travel to the town to do research for an article. However, as Capote digs deeper into the story, he is inspired to expand the project into what would be his greatest work, "In Cold Blood." He arranges extensive interviews with the convicted killers, especially with Perry Smith. However, his feelings of compassion for Perry conflicts with his need for closure for his book which only an execution can provide. That conflict and the mixed motives for both interviewer and subject make for a troubling experience that would produce an literary account that would redefine modern non-fiction
The miracle worker by Arthur Penn( Visual )

25 editions published between 1962 and 2017 in English and held by 2,526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One might, at first, assume that a biographical film about the education of deaf, mute and blind Helen Keller might be a study in mawkish sentimentality. To the contrary, it is a tough, thought-provoking and often unsettlingly honest story of two very strong personalities, clashing and ultimately overcoming incredible odds. Oscars went to both Patty Duke (as Keller) and Anne Bancroft (as her teacher, Annie Sullivan) for their exceptionally powerful performances, in this recreation of their Broadway success. (NOTE: For this film production of William Gibsonʹs award winning play, United Artists had wanted to replace Bancroft with a more bankable star, but director Arthur Penn insisted on Bancroft, thus bringing her not only commendations for this fine film, but also a long and distinguished Hollywood career.) (Bill Roth)
