The King's Speech by Tom Hooper( Visual )

67 editions published between 2010 and 2020 in 4 languages and held by 3,806 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

King Henry V unites his people, deals justly with traitors, leads his soldiers to victory, and in the end ensures the peace by marrying the French princess Katherine
Hamlet by Kenneth Branagh( Visual )

98 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this first-ever full-text film of William Shakespeare's greatest work, the power surges through every scene. Kenneth Branagh sets the timeless tale of murder, corruption and revenge in an opulent 19th century world, uses sprawling Blenheim Palace as Elsinore and stages much of the action in shimmering mirrored and gold-lined interiors that include the largest single set in England. The energy is electrifying, set aglow by a luminous cast. The excitement of the Bard's majestic words and an adventurous filmmaking style lift the story from its often shadowy ambiance to fully-lit pageantry and rage

But he fled that life, unable to cope with the emotional burden of his abilities. Marie Lelay is a French TV presenter coping with the intense emotions brought on by a near death experience in the 2004 tsunami in Thailand. She's written a book on the subject, which was greeted with derision by her colleagues. Marcus and Jason live in a London council estate, covering for their mother, who's a hopeless junkie.
