Memoirs of a geisha by Rob Marshall( Visual )

37 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 3,187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1929, a poor fisherman sells his 9-year-old daughter to a geisha house in Kyoto. Chiyo will be an unpaid servant until it is determined if she is beautiful enough for apprenticeship, and the house's clientèle. Run by Mother, the ruling geisha is Hatsumomo, and little Pumpkin her only friend. Trained under strict discipline for a lifetime of entertaining and flattering wealthy men, Sayuri grows up lovely, accomplished, and the target of jealous rivals. Love is no part of this cloistered world, although geisha lore hints that even if they fall in love with clients--the operative word is client, and that love is never free

The Jane Austen Book Club by Kathy Baker( Visual )

A group of six friends, in Sacramento, gather to distract themselves from loss - a newly dumped Sylvia, Prudie's repressed disappointment, or Jocelyn, who has a life of unrealized dreams. All are devoted Jane Austen fans, except the lone man, Grigg, who has an ulterior motive for joining the chick-lit gang. There's plenty of pride (Prudie), prejudice (Jocelyn), sense (Sylvia), and sensibility (Sylvia's daughter Allegra). Throw in a fair amount of persuasion. Relationships and alliances unfold over the months

Der seltsame Fall des Benjamin Button( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im frühen 20. Jahrhundert wird Benjamin Button geboren - als alter Greis. Im Verlauf seines Lebens altert er nicht, sondern wird immer jünger. Als er sich in Daisy verliebt, wird ihr Verhältnis zueinander durch Benjamins Besonderheit auf die Probe gestellt, da sie immer älter, er aber immer jünger wird. - Epische Lebensgeschichte eines Mannes, dessen Alterungsprozess rückwärts abläuft. Die sich aus dieser Situation zwangsläufig ergebenden Konflikte und Situationen sind, wie die eines normalen Lebens auch, urkomisch bis tieftraurig, und regen den Zuschauer gerade wegen ihrer grundsätzlichen Normalität zum Nachdenken an. Die mehr als üppige Verfilmung einer Kurzgeschichte ist solide, bewegend und aufmunternd zugleich, ein echter Fincher-Film eben. (www.moviemaze.de, 18.5.10)
El curioso caso de Benjamin Button( Visual )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El curioso caso de Benjamin Button comienza con una notable frase: "Nací bajo circunstancias poco comunes." La película fue adaptada de una historia de 1920 por F. Scott Fitzgerald y trata sobre un hombre que nació con ochenta años y año tras año rejuvenecía. Los acontecimientos por los que pasa Benjamin son tan extraordinarios y comunes como podría ser la vida de cualquier hombre, desde su nacimiento en el año de 1918 en Nueva Orleans, su trabajo el alta mar, el bombardeo de pearl Harbor, hasta el regresao a su viejo hogar. Dirigida por David Fincher (Zodiaco, El club de la pelea) y protagonizada por Brad Pitt y Cate Blanchett, quienes caracterizan a Benjamin y Daisy, dos compañeros del alma con tiempos de vida inversos, El curioso caso de Benjamin Button es una épica aventura através del tiempo sobre las cosas que perduran como las alegrías de la vida, la tristeza de la muerte y el amor que perdura más allá del tiempo
