I, Tonya by Craig Gillespie( Visual )

32 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 2,229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, Tonya is a dark comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous and poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan...I, Tonya is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding's life and career in all of its unchecked--and checkered--glory"--Back cover

Lars and the real girl( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To some, Lars and the Real Girl will play as comedy; to others, tragedy. Though Craig Gillespie (Mr. Woodcock) allows Lars Lindstrom (a mustachioed Ryan Gosling, miles away from Half Nelson) a happy ending, the road is far from smooth. This rumpled Midwesterner couldn't be more miserable. His brother, Gus (Paul Schneider, All the Real Girls), and sister-in-law, Karin (Emily Mortimer, Lovely and Amazing), fall over themselves to cheer him up, but Lars cannot be moved; he?s been like that since childhood. Then a porn-addicted co-worker hips him to the lifelike Real Doll. The next thing everyone knows, Lars has a new girlfriend named Bianca. She's from Brazil, she's shy, and she uses a wheelchair. She's also made of silicon. (Because Lars is a devout Christian, hanky-panky is out of the question.) Since he's finally emerging from his shell, his doctor, Dagmar (Patricia Clarkson), advises Gus and Karin to play along with the "delusion." Soon the whole town, including Margo (Kelli Garner), who harbors a not-so-secret crush on her officemate, gets in on the action, forcing Lars to rejoin the human race or crawl deeper into psychosis. Written by Six Feet Under's Nancy Oliver, Lars and the Real Girl is built around such a preposterous premise, it's hard to know whether to laugh or cry. Fortunately, the actors play it straight. Gosling does his best to make Lars sympathetic, but Schneider and Mortimer, fully convincing in their concern, are the true heart and soul of this odd little film
L'ultima tempesta( Visual )

2 editions published in 2016 in Multiple languages and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il 18 febbraio 1952, una terribile tempesta colpisce il New England, devastando intere città della costa orientale e devastando le imbarcazioni che sfortunatamente si trovano nella sua traiettoria. Fra queste, la SS Pendleton, una petroliera T-2 diretta a Boston, viene letteralmente spezzata in due: i 30 marinai intrappolati a poppa sono destinati a un rapido naufragio. Il primo ufficiale di bordo Ray Sybert esorta gli uomini a mettere da parte le loro divergenze e a collaborare per riuscire a superare una delle peggiori tempeste che si siano mai abbattute sull'East Coast. Nel frattempo, la notizia del disastro raggiunge la Guardia Costiera di Chatham, nel Massachusetts. Il Sergente Maggiore Daniel Cluff dà ordine di effettuare una rischiosa operazione per mettere in salvo i naufraghi: quattro uomini guidati dal Capitano Bernie Webber, si imbarcano su una scialuppa di salvataggio dal motore difettoso, contro onde di 18 metri, venti sferzanti e temperature glaciali (MyMovies)
