The Queen by Stephen Frears( Visual )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 2,612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Queen begins with a familiar epigraph "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown"--Henry IV, Part II. The action of the film takes place during the week following the death, on August 31, 1997 of Diana, Princess of Wales. One of its accomplishments, courtesy of adroit use of newsreel and other contemporary footage, is to remind viewers of the deep sadness that surrounded that event. It is also about the divergent and potentially ruinous ways the monarch and Prime Minister Tony Blair responded to the resulting torrent of national grief

The story takes place at the opening of a new century, one that held forth all kinds of promises, especially for women. In this post-Victorian Fifth Avenue milieu, Lily Bart, an unmarried woman of 29 with dwindling prospects, needs a husband badly. She lives beyond her means, relying on the grudging charity of her elderly aunt. She is the kind of girl who would make an admirable decoration on some fine gentleman's arm, but there is a liveliness--a knowingness--in her eyes that alarms potential suitors. Lily is unsuccessful in her search for a haven, because she values her emotional and financial independence. To her eternal sorrow, it is other women, the doyennes of high society, who obliquely, ruthlessly, keep that independence forever out of poor Lily's reach

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mandy and Josh were a happily married young couple, when their idyll was abruptly shattered. Josh was in a motorcycle accident which left him in a seven day coma with death imminent. Mandy, desperate to preserve her tie to her beloved husband, asked that his sperm be harvested so that she could have his child. As there was no written consent from Josh, the hospital refused. The family of both Mandy and Josh, as well as their friends, rallied to the cause, and with pressure on their behalf from the media, they were able to get this controversial issue resolved. Dr. Cappy Rothman, the first doctor to have harvested post mortem sperm (1978), subsequently founded the Cryobank in California to store sperm. With his help, Mandy's mission was accomplished. The film follows Mandy's in vitro fertilization, her very emotional pregnancy and the birth of her son. Her resolve to bring up Josh's child never wavers even when a new man enters her life. Josh's parents are devastated at the loss of their son and the fear that Mandy's new relationship may make it harder for them to be connected to their grandson. For Mandy, the birth 15 months after the fatal accident makes her feel that part of Josh has survived
