Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare( Visual )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 1,770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forsooth, this is a pretty play! In fair, tropical Verona Beach in the present day, Romeo + Juliet blithely weds 400-year-old dialog to MTV style visuals. Swords have become guns, and the Montagues and Capulets have become Mafia-style family-based gangs, while their sons run their own rich-kid gangs whose rumbles bring out armies of cops. Whilst these two households are constantly fighting, Romeo and Juliet meet up and fall in love. Unfortunately, life is not as simple as fall-in-love-and-get-married in this city. Much trouble ensues, with banishments, curses, and finally death. Shakespeare bereft of snobbery, language intact, accessible for all those who think that Shakespeare is "too hard" to understand

The Age of Innocence by Martin Scorsese( Visual )

5 editions published between 1993 and 2018 in English and German and held by 1,457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In New York City in the 1870s, a rigid social code governs how people talk, walk, meet, part, dine, earn their livings, fall in love, and marry. Not a word of the code is written down anywhere, but these people have been studying it since they were born. In this elegant milieu, marriages, like treaties between nations, exist to provide for the orderly transmission of wealth; scions of old and rich families understand that their personal desires have no place in the design. One such is Newland Archer, engaged to marry pretty young May Welland. When he becomes entranced with May's cousin Ellen, the notorious Countess Olenska, every member of that class mobilizes to prevent Archer from doing anything that threatens their needs
