Sophie's Choice

United States | 1982 | Alan J. Pakula

Sophie's Choice

Meryl Streep won her first Academy Award for Best Actress in this poetic, moving, underrated film. Streep plays Sophie Zawistowski, a tormented Polish Catholic immigrant who survived Auschwitz and now shares a house in postwar Brooklyn with a brilliant but temperamental Jewish lover (Kevin Kline, also superb) and an aspiring Southern writer (Peter MacNicol). The writer, who’s also in love with Sophie, seeks to know why she is so tortured. From William Styron’s novel.
