Hamlet by Kenneth Branagh( Visual )

43 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this first-ever full-text film of William Shakespeare's greatest work, the power surges through every scene. Kenneth Branagh sets the timeless tale of murder, corruption and revenge in an opulent 19th century world, uses sprawling Blenheim Palace as Elsinore and stages much of the action in shimmering mirrored and gold-lined interiors that include the largest single set in England. The energy is electrifying, set aglow by a luminous cast. The excitement of the Bard's majestic words and an adventurous filmmaking style lift the story from its often shadowy ambiance to fully-lit pageantry and rage
Othello by Oliver Parker( Visual )

35 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Venice during 1570, Desdemona, daughter of a powerful nobleman, elopes with Othello, a proud Moor celebrated as the city's most awesome warrior. Iago, who has served alongside Othello for a decade, is angered when the general chooses another lieutenant, Cassio, as his second in command. In retribution, Iago sabotages Cassio's promotion and convinces Othello that the handsome officer is cuckolding him. Othello writhes under the tortures Iago has created, and in a fit of jealousy smothers Desdemona, who caresses her beloved husband as she dies. Unfortunately, as adapted by director Parker, this is Shakespeare Lite, a primer for those who refuse to wrap themselves in his poetry, but do want to know what happened. The result is a movie that will not give viewers much of an idea of Shakespeare's play, and may inadvertently lead to ideas about interracial love that were not much on Shakespeare's mind. The audience must think, "There, but for the grace of God, go we," or the production has not worked
