Angels in America by Mike Nichols ( Visual )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and French and held by 1,919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in 1985. Revolves around two very different men with AIDS, one fictional, one fictionalized. Roy Cohn, personifies all the hypocrisy, delusion and callousness of the official response to the plague. Nothing shakes Roy's lack of empathy: even on his death bed, he's fighting with his gay nurse and taunting the woman he helped put to death, Ethel Rosenberg. The other patient is Prior Walter, who is visited by an angel and deserted by his self-pitying lover, Louis. Louis moves on to a relationship with Joe Pitt, a Mormon lawyer whose closeted homosexuality drives his wife to delusions and brings his mother to New York

Gandhi by Richard Attenborough ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 1,566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This biographical epic about Barister Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is really a celluloid masterpiece that has excelled the existing excellencies in every department of film making, right from direction to photography to art designing. The plot of the movie revolves about how a simple young man from India goes to England to become Barrister and comes back to India and motivates and mobilises the whole Indian nation to run the English out of India and finally gets assassinated by his own countrys fundamentalists. Though this is more or less a biography of a single person, nowhere it reflects that way. The plot lucidly shows the most crucial stage of the Indias struggle for freedom. It introduces to the audience how a nation can win its independence with one of the most powerful instrument, that is non-violence
