The King's Speech by Tom Hooper( Visual )

142 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 4,141 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

Elizabeth Bennet is a strong-willed yet sensible young woman, the second of five sisters. She has a long-suffering but loving clerical father, and a scatterbrained mother anxious to marry them off as soon as possible--to wealthy young gentlemen. At a local ball, she encounters one such, Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, whom she finds arrogant, cold, and rude. Her older sister Jane falls in love with Darcy's best friend Mr. Bingley, while youngest sister Lydia flirts with anyone in a military uniform. Lizzie finds herself fighting off the attentions of the unctuous Mr. Collins and quite taken by the charming Mr. Wickham - who also happens to be an enemy of Mr. Darcy. However, as the characters succumb in many ways to pride and prejudice, Lizzie learns that not all is quite as it seems ... and that Mr. Darcy might not be so disagreeable after all
