Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice by Simon Langton( Visual )

Elizabeth Bennet is a strong-willed yet sensible young woman, the second of five sisters. She has a long-suffering but loving clerical father, and a scatterbrained mother anxious to marry them off as soon as possible--to wealthy young gentlemen. At a local ball, she encounters one such, Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, whom she finds arrogant, cold, and rude. Her older sister Jane falls in love with Darcy's best friend Mr. Bingley, while youngest sister Lydia flirts with anyone in a military uniform. Lizzie finds herself fighting off the attentions of the unctuous Mr. Collins and quite taken by the charming Mr. Wickham - who also happens to be an enemy of Mr. Darcy. However, as the characters succumb in many ways to pride and prejudice, Lizzie learns that not all is quite as it seems ... and that Mr. Darcy might not be so disagreeable after all

Topsy-turvy by Mike Leigh( Visual )

28 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A wonderful meditation on the creation of art, Academy Award-winning "Topsy-Turvy" catches Gilbert and Sullivan, the famed playwright-composers, at a crossroads in their illustrious careers. Having scored numerous hits (like "The Pirates of Penzance" and "HMS Pinafore"), they've reached a creative dry spot with their latest project. All seems lost when thanks to his wife's insistence, Gilbert attends a Japanese exposition in London. Soon, "The Mikado" is born. An antic comedy and riveting drama from Oscar-nominated director Mike Leigh, "Topsy-Turvy" was hailed by many critics as the Best Film of 1999. A delight!
