Acclaimed writer/director Stephen Poliakoff brings together a sterling ensemble cast in this tense psychological thriller set against the idyllic British countryside during the glorious summer of 1939, just before the outbreak of the Second World War. Atonement's Romola Garai stars as Anne, a budding young actress and eldest daughter of the venerable MP Sir Alexander Keyes, (Bill Nighy, Love Actually, Notes on a Scandal). When Anne stumbles across secret recordings of a sinister plot to appease the Nazis, and shortly afterwards close friends die in suspicious circumstances, she finds herself swept into a web of dark secrets and in increasing danger from a powerful and menacing enemy. With her most precious certainties destroyed and unable to trust even those closest to her, she comes to realise the full extent of her own betrayal and vulnerability. Garai and Nighy are joined by Academy Awardʼ-winning actress Julie Christie (Doctor Zhivago, Finding Neverland), David Tennant (Dr. Who), Jeremy Northam (Gosford Park, The Tudors), Hugh Bonneville (Iris, Notting Hill), and the legendary Christopher Lee (Lord of The Rings) in this edge-of-your-seat period thriller

"Black mirror is a drama series from Charlie Brooker consisting of three separate self-contained stories. The National anthem is a political thriller in which the Prime Minister faces a huge dilemma and has to choose between bowing to the pressure of public opinion or following his own moral compass. 15 million merits is a satire on entertainment shows. In this world, the only way to escape drudgery is to enter the "Hot Shot" talent show and just hope you can impress the judges. The Entire history of you is set in an alternate reality where everyone has access to a system which records everything they do, see or hear. You need never forget a face, holiday or night out again... but is that a good thing?"--Container

"Black Mirror White Christmas is a chilling feature-length seasonal special of the critically-acclaimed drama series, and it's the most mind-bending episode yet, consisting of three interwoven stories brimming with near-future madness. In a mysterious and remote snowy outpost, Matt and Potter share a Christmas meal together and swap creepy tales of their earlier lives in the outside world. Matt is a charismatic American trying to bring the reserved, secretive Potter out of his shell. Are both men who they appear to be? Along the way we see Matt offering an unusual form of romantic guidance to an inexperienced young man, watch Greta thrust headlong into a nightmarish world of 'smart' gadgetry, and explore what might happen if you could 'block' people in real life, just as you can on Facebook or Twitter. All three stories are bound together into a suitably unsettling whole. Fans of eerie Christmas stories are in for a treat."

Black mirror temporada 1( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

¿Qué pasaría si cada uno de nosotros llevase injertado un disco duro que fuera grabando todos los acontecimientos de nuestra vida? ¿qué tipo de personas seríamos si el único fin de nuestra existencia fuera participar en un reality show?, ¿y si nos quedásemos mirando idiotizados lo más morboso de la televisión? ¿podríamos realmente mirarnos al espejo? La trilogía 'Black mirror', creada por Charlie Brooker (The Guardian), es un virtuoso ejercicio que refleja la imparable y devoradora evolución de las nuevas tecnologías de la comunicación y su influencia en lo que, en un futuro próximo, pudiera quedar de humano en las relaciones humanas
