Love's labour's lost by William Shakespeare( Visual )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The handsome young King of Navarre and his three friends--Berowne, Longaville, and Dumaine--make a pledge to retreat for three years to study literature and art, depriving themselves of all comforts, including the company of women, for the duration. The pledge survives intact for exactly as long as it takes the beautiful Princess of France and her three friends--Rosaline, Maria, and Katherine--to travel to Navarre on a diplomatic mission from her father. Shakespeare purists will probably be horrified that Branagh has juxtaposed the Bard with classics by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and George and Ira Gershwin, in a loving homage to the great musicals of the '30s. He has also thrown in every cliché of said musicals, reviving the abandoned genre with 90 minutes of elaborately staged flossy, frothy, campy, cotton-candy fun

Ratcatcher by Lynne Ramsay( Visual )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Glasgow in the early seventies when the city was in the midst of a garbage strike, 'Ratcatcher' is an evocative examination of working class life seen through the eyes of twelve year old James Gillespie. As the film begins James is the sole passive witness to the drowning of a young boy. Living with this secret becomes increasingly difficult and he dreams of an escape from his bleak life on a council housing estate, and from the guilt he feels over his friend's death. Ramsay's film takes off from and extends the gritty realist tradition of British cinema. There is bleakness and sadness, but there are also moments of startling beauty and humanity. She is particularly effective at suggesting the world as seen through a child's eye, as well as detailing the clumsiness and awkward emotions of adolescent sexuality. With the most economic of means, she immerses the viewer in the textures and sounds of 1970s Glasgow, eloquently and without recourse to didactism, expressing the immensity of suffering bought on by poverty
