Under Capricorn by Alfred Hitchcock( Visual )

7 editions published between 1949 and 2012 in English and German and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the colony of NSW in the 1830s, this is a woman-centred melodrama involving two overlapping triangles (husband/wife/outsider, husband/wife/sinister housekeeper) set against colonial class divisions. The film is light on suspense but complex in emotional interplay involving the long take (which precludes strict point of view) in shifting emotional identification intertwined with the guilt of the main characters. Robin Wood has also identified complex intertextual relationships: links with an early Hitchcock, The Manxman (a class-based triangle), Rebecca (the sinister housekeeper), Vertigo (the role of 'confession' and the reconstruction of the woman's image by the hero), and the stylised psychoanalytical romances Spellbound and Marnie. Along with Notorious and Gaslight it is central to Ingrid Bergman's canon: the tension in her persona between the active 'natural' woman and the vulnerable mentally and/or physically debilitated victim

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll( Visual )

5 editions published between 1983 and 2006 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alice Kingsleigh is a young woman at a crossroads. Not knowing what she wants from life, she is being pushed, pulled, strong-armed, and confused into doing what everyone expects of her. A marriage proposal in front of friends and family pushes Alice over the edge and down the rabbit hole into a place she hasn't visited since her father died 10 years before. Only problem is, she's now a very different person, has no memories of Underland, and is somehow still expected to be someone she's not. How can she argue with something that's mapped out in full visual splendor in the prophetic Oraculum? With the help of The Mad Hatter, The White Queen, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Absolom, The Cheshire Cat, and the Bandersnatch, can Alice unlock the mystery of her past and light a path to her future?
