Sophie's Choice

Released in 1982, Sophie’s Choice is based on the novel of the same name and stars Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline and Peter MacNicol.

Streep plays the said Sophie.

Set in 1947, Sophie meets an aspiring novelist Stingo (MacNicol) in Brooklyn who she befriends and she has an unstable lover in Nathan (Kline).

Sophie is a Polish immigrant and she is a survivor of Auschwitz during World War II as she recounts this horrific experience to Stingo.

Quite harrowing seeing this movie especially how tragic the ending is.

I saw Sophie’s Choice due to it being parodied in The Kevin Bishop Show where Sophie was played by my wife Karen Gillan and she later made another choice as another titular character in Amy’s Choice in Doctor Who.
