Dans la banlieue de Londres, au début des années vingt, Virginia Woolf lutte contre la folie qui la guette. Elle entame l'écriture de son grand roman, Mrs Dalloway. Plus de vingt ans après, à Los Angeles, Laura Brown lit cet ouvrage : une expérience si forte qu'elle songe à changer radicalement de vie. A New York, aujourd'hui, Clarissa Vaughn, version moderne de Mrs Dalloway, soutient Richard, un ami poète atteint du sida. Comment ces histoires vont-elles se rejoindre, comment ces trois femmes vont-elles former une seule et même chaîne ? La littérature est si puissante qu'un chef-d'oeuvre peut, par-delà les époques, modifier irrévocablement l'existence de celles qui le côtoient

Rob Gordon è appena stato lasciato dalla sua convivente, Laura, e cerca di superare il suo tormento continuando a lavorare nel suo scalcinato negozio di dischi in vinile, con i suoi due bizzarri ma fedeli collaboratori, Dick e Barry. Per fare dell'utile autoanalisi, Rob scava a ritroso nelle sue storie passate e nelle precedenti delusioni d'amore, arrivando ad elencare cinque grandi patimenti che si originano fin da quando era un semplice studente delle scuole medie. Ciò che ossessiona Rob, che continua intanto a vedere Laura per permetterle di prendere progressivamente tutti i suoi effetti personali lasciati a casa, è il non comprendere il perché venga sempre lasciato per un altro. Anche in questo caso la situazione pare delinearsi come nei casi precedenti: Rob, infatti, viene a sapere per caso da Liz, una loro amica comune, che Laura ha intrapreso una relazione con Ian Reynolds, un loro vecchio vicino di casa. A questo punto Rob, che ha comunque avuto una fugace relazione con Marie DeSalle, una cantante, inizia ad ossessionare Laura di telefonate e richieste di poterla vedere, al punto che Ian Reynolds si reca nel suo negozio per porre termine alle ripetute seccature. Rob decide a questo punto di contattare le cinque donne che lo hanno fatto soffrire maggiormente nella sua vita per scoprire dalla loro diretta testimonianza che cosa non abbia funzionato in lui. Rivedendole a distanza di tempo, Rob si accorge di non essere sempre stato la causa del fallimento della relazione e di aver spesso idealizzato persone e situazioni. Con questa nuova consapevolezza, Rob riceve la telefonata di Laura in lacrime che gli annuncia la morte del padre. La sera del funerale, dopo che Rob, per tutta la cerimonia, si è defilato, Laura lo raggiunge in strada e gli chiede di far l'amore con lei: è il preludio ad un loro riavvicinamento. Rob sbanda ulteriormente nel suo percorso verso la maturità sentimentale invaghendosi di Caroline Fortis, una giornalista che lo intervista in quali tà di produttore di un disco di due giovani skateboarders che gravitano intorno al suo negozio, ma è solo un attimo: nella vita di Rob ormai c'è nuovamente solo Laura e la consapevolezza di poterla rendere felice

Fifty shades of Grey by Sam Taylor-Wood( Visual )

10 editions published in 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eine Literaturstudentin begegnet einem jungen Milliardär, der seine Sexualität nur in dominanten sadomasochistischen Gesten auszuleben vermag. Die Verfilmung des ersten Bands einer kommerziell äußerst erfolgreichen Romantrilogie setzt nicht auf spektakuläre oder gar spekulative Bildexzesse, sondern erzählt im Wechsel von ausufernden Dialogen und gebremsten Sexszenen von der beginnenden Herzensbildung eines versehrten Mannes. Dabei deutet die stellenweise betont kühle Inszenierung die emotionalen und erotischen Spannungen dieser Konstellation nur ansatzweise an
Nowhere boy by Sam Taylor-Wood( Visual )

Spielfilm über den jungen John Lennon, den Beginn seiner musikalischen Karriere und die Gründung der Beatles, wobei nicht zuletzt die Beziehung Lennons zu seiner leiblichen Mutter beleuchtet wird, die er erst als Teenager kennen lernte. Ohne sklavisch an historischen Details zu hängen, entfaltet sich der Film als psychologisch nuanciertes Coming-of-Age- und Musikerporträt sowie als überzeugendes Zeit- und Milieubild, das von einer um Realismus bemühten Inszenierung und einem hervorragenden Darsteller-Ensemble getragen wird.
