The King's Speech by Tom Hooper( Visual )

59 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 3,809 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

Hamlet by Kenneth Branagh( Visual )

79 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this first-ever full-text film of William Shakespeare's greatest work, the power surges through every scene. Kenneth Branagh sets the timeless tale of murder, corruption and revenge in an opulent 19th century world, uses sprawling Blenheim Palace as Elsinore and stages much of the action in shimmering mirrored and gold-lined interiors that include the largest single set in England. The energy is electrifying, set aglow by a luminous cast. The excitement of the Bard's majestic words and an adventurous filmmaking style lift the story from its often shadowy ambiance to fully-lit pageantry and rage

"Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father's global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he's truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can't understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death. Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her father's last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous.

If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider"--Container
