Underrated masterpiece!

This film went beyond my expectations. Sophie's Choice is an inspiring, beautiful yet tragic story that has become a memorable film. It is quite gut retching because this film brought back the horror of the Holocaust. Regarding the Holocaust, it wasn't so much about death but about slavery in the Holocaust and about self-emotional torture. It is a story that can make people stand tall and stand ag... read more

A classic

Since it is one of the most highly regarded movies starring Meryl Streep (she even got an academy award for her performance), and I was really eager to watch this flick so I had some rather high expectations. Eventually, I had some rather mixed feelings about the whole thing. Indeed, I really had a hard time caring about the whole thing. Still, Meryl Streep was indeed really terrific and if only f... read more

The Toughest Choice

A tale of tough choices in difficult times. Oscar winning Meryl Streep as a Polish woman who survived Auschwitz. But she has to bear heavy memories. Unforgettable performance.

Meryl Streep is a wonder as Sophie., writes critic Roger Ebert. There is hardly an emotion that Streep doesn't touch in this movie, and yet we're never aware of her straining. This is one of the most astonish... read more

Sophie is the survivor of Nazi concentration camps, who has found a reason to live in Nathan, a sparkling if unsteady American Jew obsessed with the Holocaust. They befriend Stingo, the movie's narrator, a young American writer new to New York City. But the happiness of Sophie and Nathan is endangered by her ghosts and his obsessions.

25 From 82: My Favorite Films Of 1982 (25 movies items)

"If you've never seen any of Meryl Streep's movies & have been wondering what all the hype is about her & her acting, this is the movie to check out. I only recently watched it for the first time, & find Mz. Streep's performance everything I had heard about it. One the best actresses to ever grace the silver screen at her best (and to be honest, judging from her most recent films, like The Devil Wears Prada, Julie & Julia, and Doubt, it's a streak of high level of quality acting that seems to st"

"First viewing - Sept. 21st/22nd jaytoast's thoughts Xanadon't's thoughts I had heard of this film a few times before, but odds are I wouldn't have watched it had it not been included among the films for this month. And while I'm glad I've finally seen it, it's not the sort of film I'd ever watch again. The acting is good (Meryl Streep's performance is definitely Oscar-worthy & thus well earned), the story is good, but I was never really swept away by it. That's not to say I wasn't engaged & ent"

"The flashback scene of the excruciating, heart-rending 'choice' that Polish woman Sophie Zawistowska (Meryl Streep) had to make in a concentration camp with a Nazi officer. First, the officer told her that she was beautiful and he propositioned her: "I'd like to get you in bed." He then asked: "Are you a Polack?" She answered, trembling: "I am a Pole! I was born in Krakow. I am not a Jew. Neither are my children. They're not Jews. They are racially pure. I'm a Christian. I'm a devout Catholic." "
