The Queen by Stephen Frears( Visual )

25 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Queen begins with a familiar epigraph "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown"--Henry IV, Part II.

It is also about the divergent and potentially ruinous ways the monarch and Prime Minister Tony Blair responded to the resulting torrent of national grief
