The age of innocence by Martin Scorsese( Visual )

19 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,492 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

"El cadáver de la novia, de Tim Burton se desarrolla en la oscura tradición romántica de sus creaciones anteriores: El Joven Manos de Tijera y El Extraño Mundo de Jack. Ambientada en una aldea europea del siglo 19, esta película de animación cueta la historia de Víctor (voz de Johnny Depp), un joven que es llevado repentinamente al inframundo al casarse accidentalmente con una misteriosa novia que es un cadáver (voz de Helena Bonham Carter) mientras que su novia real, Victoria (voz de Emily Watson), le espera en la tierra de los vivos. Aún cuando la vida en el mundo de los muertos resulta ser mucho más colorida de lo que su estricta educación ofrecía, Víctor comprende que no existe nada en esta vida ni en la otra, que la pueda separar de su verdadero amor. Es una historia de optimismo y de auténtica vida después de la muerte, que es contada al clásico estilo Burton."--Envase

"I was just thinking what an interesting concept it is to eliminate the writer from the artistic process. If we could just get rid of these actors and directors, maybe we've got something here."--Griffin Mill.

Like all Hollywood producers, he's always looking over his shoulder, and he thinks up-and-comer Larry Levy is after his job.
