The King's Speech by Tom Hooper( visu )
62 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 3,766 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( visu )
25 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,886 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
