Becket by Peter Glenville( Visual )

4 editions published between 1964 and 2007 in English and held by 1,497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite differences in rank and background, King Henry II and Thomas Becket are lifelong friends. The King is in constant conflict with the Church, which refuses to contribute financing to his wars in France, and jealously guards the tax-free status granted it by previous monarchs. When the Archbishop of Canterbury dies, Henry has a brilliant idea: rather than another pious cleric loyal to Rome, he will appoint his old friend, Thomas Becket--technically a deacon--to the post. Unfortunately, Becket takes the job seriously, holding devotion to God and the Church above his loyalty to the throne, or the person of its inhabitant. In opposition to Henry, he proves abler than his predecessors do, and the clash of two powerful personalities leads to destruction

Trama: Durante una notte di tempesta, una donna incinta approda nella casa di una vecchia signora. É molto malata, ma poco prima di morire riesce a dare alla luce il figlio. Il bebè viene portato nell'orfanotrofio di una parrocchia. Qui, al nome di Oliver Twist, vive per otto anni, finché non viene affidato ad un mercante di bare a cui serve un aiutante. Malgrado il carattere remissivo, Oliver non riesce a sopportare le ingiurie che continuano a piovergli addosso. Dopo l'ennesimo insulto alla madre, il ragazzo picchia l'artefice delle offese e scappa, nottetempo, verso Londra. Arrivato nella capitale, il bambino è facile bersaglio di una banda di ladri-ragazzini capeggiati dall'ebreo Fagin, che lo assolda per compiere furti e piccoli reati. Durante un borseggio cui Oliver assiste da spettatore, egli viene per sbaglio arrestato e picchiato. Liberato in seguito ad una testimonianza favorevole, il ragazzo viene accolto in casa del signore rapinato, il ricco Mr Bronlow. Ripresosi dalle percosse e finalmente felice, Oliver durante una commissione in città viene rapito dai ragazzini di Fagin per paura che egli spifferi alla polizia i traffici illegali dell'ebreo. Mr Bronlow riesce però a mettersi in contatto con Nancy, la ragazza di Sikes, il principale complice di Fagin. Quest'ultima, per amore del piccolo, racconta quello che sa al ricco signore, ma il compagno sentitosi tradito, per vendicarsi, la uccide. Ormai la fine della banda è vicina: nascosti in una catapecchia, la gang dei ragazzini viene scovata dalle guardie pubbliche e dalla folla del quartiere. In un disperato tentativo di fuga, Sikes viene ucciso dal colpo di un fucile. Fagin è arrestato e Oliver, finalmente, può tornare da Mr Bronlow, il quale scopre che il ragazzo è suo nipote. La madre del ragazzo, infatti, non era altri che la figlia scomparsa del vecchio signore

Maria Stuart (Saoirse Ronan), die bereits im Alter von nur neun Monaten zur Königin von Schottland gekrönt wurde, kehrt mit 18 Jahren nach dem Tod ihres jungen Ehemannes von Frankreich nach Schottland zurück, um rechtmässig den Thron zu beanspruchen. Dadurch tritt sie in einen Machtkampf mit Königin Elisabeth I., die bis dahin Alleinherrscherin über das englische Königreich ist. Maria Stuart erkennt Elisabeth nicht als rechtmässige Königin von England und Schottland an. Elisabeth, die ebenfalls keine Nebenbuhlerin akzeptiert, wird in ihrem Machtanspruch herausgefordert. Aufstände, Verschwörungen und Betrug bedrohen den Thron beider Königinnen, die trotz ihrer Rivalität voneinander fasziniert sind. Als junge, selbstbewusste Regentinnen streiten sie um die Krone, um Liebe und um Macht in einer männerdominierten Welt, wodurch sich das Schicksal ihres Landes für immer verändern wird. (Quelle:
