This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Meryl Streep has received more Academy Award nominations than any other performer in movie history but Sophie’s Choice is the only film for which she has won the Best Actress Oscar. It is an unforgettable performance, combining physical fragility and emotional vulnerability as she really inhabits the life of the title character. Set in Brooklyn in 1947, the film unfolds through the eyes of aspiring writer Stingo (MacNicol) as he befriends his neighbours Nathan (Kline) and the mesmerising Sophie, a beautiful Polish refugee haunted by events in her past. Gorgeous cinematography by Nestor Almendros richly enhances this devastating adaptation of the William Styron novel. Part of Glasgow Film Festival
