Sie wollen ein Warum? Aber vielleicht gibt es gar keins. Vielleicht ist es einfach nur passiert." Leland Fitzgerald ist ein normaler Teenager, bis zu dem Tag, an dem er eine unfassbare Tat begeht. Ohne ersichtlichen Grund tötet er auf brutale Weise den autistischen Bruder seiner Freundin Becky. Während Beckys Familie an der Katastrophe zu zerbrechen droht, versucht der Gefängnislehrer Pearl in der Jugendstrafanstalt den Beweggründen Lelands auf den Grund zu gehen. Fasziniert von der komplexen und undurchsichtigen Psyche des Jungen schafft er es, Leland dazu zu bewegen sich langsam zu öffnen. Verstörend, beeindruckend und tiefgreifend erzählt Regisseur Ryan Hoge die Geschichte von Leland Fitzgerald und macht SOLITUDE zu einem American Independent Film, welcher schon auf den renommierten Filmfestivals Sundance und Deauville nominiert wurde. Vor allem Hauptdarsteller und OSCAR-Nominee Ryan Gosling beweist hier erneut seine extreme Vielseitigkeit. OSCAR-Gewinner Kevin Spacey brilliert als aalglatter und herzloser Vater Goslings. Mit der 3-fachen OSCAR-Nominierten Michelle Williams, OSCAR-Nominee Don Cheadle, OSCAR-Gewinnerin Lena Olin, Golden Globe-Nominee Jena Malone und Chris Klein in jeder Nebenrolle herausragend besetzt schafft es ... durch seine Vielschichtigkeit den Zuschauer ab der ersten Minute in seinen Bann zu ziehen.

Illustrated Battles of the Napoleonic Age-Volume 1
75,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Forty-four battles of the Napoleonic era in words and pictures Napoleon was one of the most significant figures in world history; a military and administrative genius, statesman and despot, he set Europe ablaze and his influence around the globe resounds to this day. While there is no real glory in warfare, the Napoleonic period, with its marching Imperial armies, plumes bobbing above casques and shakos, and martial figures in uniforms glinting with steel, brass or bronze, is an irresistibly romantic time that fascinates both serious students and casual readers. Great battles were fought across continents, from the heat of the Iberian Peninsula to the snows of the Russian steppe, from the sands of Egypt to the northern woodlands of the Canadian frontier. This world at war, on land and sea, has been chronicled in hundreds of books, from first-hand accounts by soldiers who knew its battles to the works of modern historians who know there is an eager readership. Today we are familiar with photographs of warfare, but in the early nineteenth century the visual documentation of wars was undertaken by a host of talented artists and illustrators, and it is their work that places this unique Leonaur four volume set above the ordinary. Compiled from the writings of well regarded historians and experts on the subject, these accounts were originally part of a multi-volume collection of essays on the battles of the entire 19th century. Each essay benefits from the inclusion of illustrations, diagrams and maps to support and enhance the narrative, many of which will be unfamiliar to modern readers. Battles covered in this first volume include Marengo, Copenhagen, Egypt, Janissary Rebellion, Laswaree & Assaye, Pulo Aor, Austerlitz, Trafalgar, Jena, Maida, Walcheren and Albuera. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket.
