The King's Speech by Tom Hooper( Visual )

63 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 3,796 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

Hereafter by Clint Eastwood( Visual )

24 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film peers at an intriguing question--is there an afterlife?--through the lens of George, Marie, and Marcus, who are each tortured in different ways by the thought of life after death. George Lonegan is psychic. It was once his career: he was "the man who can speak to the dead, " with a high-traffic website, and a popular biography. 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. When Jason meets a sudden and tragic end, Marcus is set hopelessly adrift, and begins obsessively researching psychics and seers who can help him contact Jason on the other side

Anonymous by Roland Emmerich( Visual )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inglaterra Isabelina, siglo XVI. El film plantea una cuestión que, durante siglos, han debatido académicos y grandes escritores desde Mark Twain y Charles Dickens hasta Henry James y Sigmund Freud: ¿quién fue el autor de las obras de teatro atribuidas tradicionalmente a William Shakespeare? Se han escrito muchos libros y se han barajado muchas hipótesis al respecto, entre ellas la que ofrece Anonymous. La Inglaterra Isabelina fue un época de intrigas, de amoríos cortesanos ilícitos, de conspiraciones promovidas por una nobleza ávida de poder; y todo ello quedaba reflejado en el lugar más inesperado: el teatro londinense.
