The King's Speech by Tom Hooper( Visual )

49 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 3,598 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

Anonymous by Roland Emmerich( Visual )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 1,285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inglaterra Isabelina, siglo XVI. El film plantea una cuestión que, durante siglos, han debatido académicos y grandes escritores desde Mark Twain y Charles Dickens hasta Henry James y Sigmund Freud: ¿quién fue el autor de las obras de teatro atribuidas tradicionalmente a William Shakespeare? Se han escrito muchos libros y se han barajado muchas hipótesis al respecto, entre ellas la que ofrece Anonymous. La Inglaterra Isabelina fue un época de intrigas, de amoríos cortesanos ilícitos, de conspiraciones promovidas por una nobleza ávida de poder; y todo ello quedaba reflejado en el lugar más inesperado: el teatro londinense. (FILMAFFINITY)
