Prospero's books by Peter Greenaway( visu )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 146 libraries worldwide
"Prospero, once the Duke of Milan, now reigns over a faraway island, living there with his only daughter, Miranda. Twelve years earlier Prospero's brother, in league with the King of Naples, had exiled Prospero and his daughter from their home. One evening, Prospero imagines creating a storm powerful enough to bring his old enemies to his island. He begins to write a play about this tempest, speaking aloud the lines of each of his characters. It is the story of Prospero's past, and his revenge."--Title screens. As adapted by Peter Greenaway, the film envisions a magical realm of exquisite beauty, where the innocence of love and dreams of revenge collide to create a tempest. Greenaway structures the film around the 24 books Prospero took into exile, and while remaining faithful to the text, the treatment and delivery of that text could hardly be more different

"I Am Shakespeare" is Mark Rylance's fascinating, witty and characteristically exuberant dramatic contribution to the Shakespeare authorship debate. Is it possible that the son of an illiterate tradesman, from a small market town in Warwickshire, could have written the greatest dramatic works the world has ever seen? Mark Rylance is one of a number of leading actors who seriously question the idea that William Shakespeare was the man behind the thirty-seven plays that have moved, inspired and amazed generations. First performed at Chichester Festival Theatre in 2007, Rylance's provocative play introduces us to the main candidates and their respective claims whilst asking fundamental questions about what makes a genius, and why it all matters anyway

"Days & Nights is writer/director Christian Camargo's directorial debut, inspired by Anton Chekhov's "The Seagull" and set in rural New England in 1984. The film centers around a fading movie star (Allison Janney), who brings her paramour to her lakeside estate to visit her ailing brother (William Hurt) and fledgling artist son (Ben Whishaw). While the eccentric family and their caretakers (portrayed by an international ensemble cast including Katie Holmes, Cherry Jones, Russell Means, Michael Nyqvist, Jean Reno, Juliet Rylance, and Mark Rylance) gather to celebrate Memorial Day Weekend, reckless desire wreaks havoc and a disastrous turn of events leads the family from dysfunction to heartbreak.
