The King's Speech by Tom Hooper( Visual )

66 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 3,498 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
Zaytoun by Eran Riklis( Visual )

In 1982, amid the Lebanese Civil War, Israeli pilot Yoni is shot down over Beirut and taken prisoner by inhabitants of a Palestinian refugee camp. Among them is ten-year-old Fahed, whose father obsessively tends to his prized, but sickly olive tree, refusing to replant it until they return to their homeland. Fahed decides to use him to get past the border and into Palestine to plant his father's olive tree. The two embark on a dangerous journey, one that tests the very boundaries of humanity

Road Movie
Il discorso del re( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in Italian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Duca di York e secondogenito di re Giorgio V, Bertie è afflitto dall'infanzia da una grave forma di balbuzie che gli aliena la considerazione del padre, il favore della corte e l'affetto del popolo inglese. Figlio di un padre anaffettivo e padre affettuoso di Elisabetta (futura Elisabetta II) e Margaret, Bertie è costretto suo malgrado a parlare in pubblico e dentro i microfoni della radio, medium di successo degli anni Trenta. Sostituito il corpo con la viva voce, il Duca di York deve rieducare la balbuzie, buttare fuori le parole e trovare una voce. Lo soccorrono la devozione di Lady Lyon, sua premurosa consorte, e le tecniche poco convenzionali di Lionel Logue, logopedista di origine australiana. Tra spasmi, rilassamenti muscolari, tempi di uscita e articolazioni più o meno perfette, Bertie scalzerà il fratello regneggiante, salirà al trono col nome di Giorgio VI e troverà la corretta fonazione dentro il suo discorso più bello.
