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 unfolds over the months

The Da Vinci Code - Sakrileg ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Basierend auf dem Bestseller "Sakrileg" erzählt der "religiöse Thriller" von einem Symbolforscher, der in eine Jahrhunderte alte religiöse Intrige verwickelt wird. Das "Geheimnis", um das es dabei geht, stützt sich auf die spekulative Annahme, Jesus habe mit Maria Magdalena ein Kind gezeugt. Ein in seinen Thesen absurder, dennoch durchaus unterhaltsamer Film, der seine Geschichte aus dem Fundus von fragwürdigen Verschwörungstheorien speist und trotz seiner Nähe zum Mainstream-Kino durch die Leistung des Hauptdarstellers eine ganz eigene Prägung erhält. - Mitten in der Nacht wird der renommierte Harvard-Professor Robert Langdon in den Pariser Louvre gerufen: Der Museumsdirektor wurde ermordet. Seine Leiche, die in einer Körperhaltung wie der des Vitruvischen Mannes von Leonardo da Vinci aufgefunden wird, ist der erste grausige Hinweis in einer mysteriösen Kette aus Codes und Symbolen. Unter Einsatz seines Lebens entschlüsselt Langdon mit Hilfe der Polizei-Kryptografin Sophie Neveu versteckte Botschaften in den Kunstwerken Leonardo da Vincis. Alle verweisen auf eine sagenumwobene Bruderschaft, deren Mitglieder seit 2000 Jahren ein machtvolles Geheimnis bewahren. Die atemlose Schnitzeljagd führt Langdon und Neveu von Paris über London bis nach Schottland; währenddessen versuchen sie verzweifelt, den Code zu knacken, um mit ihm das Geheimnis zu enthüllen
