The Pawnbroker by Sidney Lumet( Visual )

A long time ago, Sol Nazerman was a professor. He had a wife, children. Then the Germans came. Sol survived the concentration camp, his family did not. Now, as the pawnbroker in a shop owned by a racketeer, he grows increasingly bitter and callous, withdrawing still further from the world around him. His eager assistant Jesus looks to him as both a teacher and a father figure, but Sol eschews involvement or compassion. This detachment leads to a tragedy, which awakens Sol's humanity, wherein he can finally acknowledge his burden of grief and guilt
The iceman cometh by Eugene O'Neill( Visual )

19 editions published between 1973 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A group of has-beens in Harry Hope's saloon wait for the annual visit of Hickey, a happy salesman. Hickey arrives a changed character and tries to make each man see reality and face the truth about himself. This play, written near the end of O'Neill's career, reflected a new and intensely personal style in his writing. In it are bits and snatches of himself, his brother, their father, and his friends. It transcends its tragedy and humor to say something about the human condition

Luther by Kari Tikka( Visual )

20 editions published between 1973 and 2015 in English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Luther compresses nearly two decades into a provocative character study that parallels Martin Luther's deepening religious dilemmas with the irresolvable earthly anxieties that shaped his beliefs and his rebellious search for truth. We're introduced to Luther as a young monk in 1506, as he defends his vows to his jealous and disapproving father (Patrick McGee). But as Luther's religious commitment deepens, his faith in an increasingly commercialized, politicized, and spiritually empty Papacy atrophies until, having preached against the medieval Catholic Church's hypocrisy, he is called to account by the very bishops he must denounce

Screen version of Bertolt Brecht's play about Galileo, the 17th century Italian who laid the foundations of modern science. Galileo made himself one of the world's first telescopes and discovered the moons of Jupiter. He supported Copernicus' theory that the Earth revolved around the Sun. This brought him into conflict with the Catholic Church. By threatening him with torture, the Church forced him to recant his views in front of a tribunal, and sentenced him to house arrest. However, Galileo's trials and theories inspired others like Newton and Kepler to prove that the Earth was not the center of the Universe
