The king's speech ( Visual )
11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2,962 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

The iron lady by Meryl Streep ( Visual )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The most celebrated actress of our time stars as the most powerful woman of her time. Oscar winner Meryl Streep, the most nominated performer in Academy Award history, delivers the definitive portrayal of Margaret Thatcher, the enigmatic, highly controversial figure who became the first and only female Prime Minister of England. Much more than a biographical epic, The Iron Lady is also the surprisingly intimate journey of a 'common' grocer's daughter whose social ambition and steel will -- along with the love of her husband and confidant, Denis (Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent) - propelled her to unprecedented power in a world dominated by men."--Container

Capitalism a love story by Michael Moore ( Visual )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 1,721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Michael Moore examines the impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans (and by default, the rest of the world). The film moves from Middle America, to the halls of power in Washington, to the global financial epicenter in Manhattan. With both humor and outrage, the film explores the question: What is the price that America pays for its love of capitalism? Families pay the price with their jobs, their homes, and their savings. Looking for an explanation, Moore talks with ordinary people whose lives have been turned upside down and tries to get answers Washington, DC. What he finds are the all-too-familiar symptoms of a love affair gone astray: lies, abuse, betrayal, and 14,000 jobs being lost every day. Moore also presents a vision of a more hopeful future
