Sophie's a star
- Sophie's Choice review by Swambi
Well filmed, although the cinematography is not up to modern standards. Meryl Streep turns in a stunning performance, and is utterly believable. It would be worth watching just for this. The flash-backs to the war are cleverly filmed, and very credible - but it's a sad story.
