Becoming Jane by Anne Hathaway( Visual )
2 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The year is 1795 and Jane Austen is a feisty 20-year-old. The emerging writer already sees a world beyond class and commerce, pride and prejudice, and dreams of doing what was then nearly unthinkable--marrying for love. Her parents prefer a wealthy husband, to assure their daughter's future social standing, and are eyeing Mr. Wisley, nephew to the very rich and very formidable Lady Gresham, as a prospective match. But when Jane meets the roguish and decidedly non-aristocratic Tom Lefroy, sharp repartee leads to flying sparks. His intellect and arrogance raise her ire - then knock her head over heels. The couple, whose flirtation flies in the face of the sense and sensibility of the age, is faced with a terrible dilemma. If they attempt to marry, they will risk everything that matters - family, friends and fortune

The real King's speech ( Visual )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The BAFTA and Oscar winning film The King's Speech has brought to the fore the inspiring story of King George VI's struggle to overcome his crippling stammer. Featuring interviews with former patients of therapist Lionel Logue, The Real King's Speech provides insight into the working relationship between Logue and his royal patient as well as looking at the methods and techniques he employed to 'cure' his patients. King George VI suffered from a debilitating stutter from the age of 8. It made speaking difficult and speaking in public humiliating. His stutter, and his inherent shyness, affected his relationship with his father...and almost lost him his bride. It made him want to hide from the world. But as a King this was impossible. George VI was known as 'The reluctant King'. He inherited his throne only because his brother renounced it. Edward VIII abdicated after only 327 days; George was to spend the rest of his life on the throne and in the public eye. George's accession to the throne came at a time when technology and history collided. George VI was the first King in an age of mass media: through the air waves he could speak to millions of his people live...and in their own homes. For the first time in history a King not only needed to look the part but sound it too; he represents his country and defines his country in times of peace and, for George VI, in times of war. But how would this man, so physically ill-equipped it made people question his ability to be a King, succeed?
