The King's Speech by Tom Hooper( Visual )

49 editions published between 2010 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The King's Speech" presents a sideways glance at a crucial period in 20th-century history--as the monumentally awkward Prince Albert, or Bertie, becomes King George VI unexpectedly in 1936 when his older brother Edward VIII abdicates to marry American divorcée Wallis Simpson. In imperial Britain between the wars, that was problem enough, but Bertie suffered from a chronic stammer that made his public appearances painful for everyone. In an age of radio, the monarch has become a symbol, which means that the King speaks to his people--regularly. Bertie and his wife, the high-spirited Princess Elizabeth find their way to an Australian-born speech therapist and amateur actor named Lionel Logue. Logue isn't a doctor, has no academic credentials, and is viewed by proper authorities as a charlatan. Oddly enough, each of these men is a desperate misfit badly in need of a new friend and a bit more self-esteem. A real friend, it seems, was exactly the medicine the future king required

1940. Les forces hitlériennes ont déjà fait main basse sur une grande partie de l'Europe. À Londres, le mathématicien prodige Alan Turing est embauché par l'armée britannique. Sa mission: intégrer les rangs d'une brigade de spécialistes chargée de décrypter Enigma, le code radio des nazis. Très vite, l'entêtement et l'indépendance d'esprit de Turing lui aliènent les autres membres de l'équipe, dirigée par Hugh Alexander, un bellâtre soucieux des conventions. Ce dernier ayant rejeté du revers de la main son hypothèse selon laquelle seule une machine, construite de sa main, pourrait percer le mystère d'Enigma, le mathématicien, au mépris du protocole, se tourne vers Winston Churchill, qui autorise le financement de l'opération. Il se met alors à l'ouvrage, avec l'aide de Joan Clarke, une collègue brillante repêchée à la suite d'un concours. [Médiafilm]

"What have we learned (and what might we have forgotten) from history's bloody backwash? Guilt, love, and history are three skeins, woven together to create human beings or, alternately, human monsters. The question of wartime culpability undergirds the May-December romance in postwar Berlin between Hanna, a weary-looking, sexually rapacious streetcar ticket-taker and Michael, a young schoolboy whom she seduces, ravenously and to his great delight. One day, Hanna is gone, with no explanation, and Michael grows into a promising young law student. His class attends a trial, where the new Germany judges the past and, by default, the lovers as well."--Container
