Sophie's Choice is a fine, absorbing, wonderfully acted, heartbreaking movie. show more
Competently directed by Pakula and featuring gorgeous cinematography by Almendros, Sophie's Choice is an overlong, fairly schlocky film that takes itself very seriously. show more
Alan Pakula's literal adaptation of William Styron's Sophie's Choice is an admirable, if reverential, movie that crams this triangle into a 2 1/2 -hour character study enriched by Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline, and nearly destroyed by Peter MacNicol. [21 Jan 1983] show more
hauntingly power performances and themes! I recommend this movie very hightly. It is a heavy theme but well worth the view! A+++ movie! So beautifully acted by the 3 main players.
