Wo hu cang long = Wo hu cang long = Crouching tiger, hidden dragon by Ang Lee( Visual )

38 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 3,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shot over the rich and vibrant landscapes of Mainland China, this award-winning film tracks the lives of three proud fighters each trying to deal with their true inner emotions: the brave warrior who is unable to declare his true love; the woman fighter whose calm demeanor belies the inner turmoil of her yearning; and the young female aristocrat set to put into a loveless marriage, but secretly needing to rebel. The choices that each of them makes lead to a violent showdown in which each are forever changed by the surprising outcome. Traditionally, martial arts films are male-dominated, with female roles being mostly supporting. This film however, turns the table around with the central character being Zhang Ziyi

Capote by Bennett Miller( Visual )

31 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 2,675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1959, Truman Capote was a popular writer for The New Yorker. He learns about the horrific and senseless murder of a family of four in Holcomb, Kansas. Inspired by the story, Capote and his partner, Harper Lee, travel to the town to do research for an article. However, as Capote digs deeper into the story, he is inspired to expand the project into what would be his greatest work, "In Cold Blood." He arranges extensive interviews with the convicted killers, especially with Perry Smith. However, his feelings of compassion for Perry conflicts with his need for closure for his book which only an execution can provide. That conflict and the mixed motives for both interviewer and subject make for a troubling experience that would produce an literary account that would redefine modern non-fiction
