Sophie’s Choice is a haunting movie. Set in Brooklyn, shortly after World War II, the film is narrated by Stingo, a young man who has moved to Brooklyn from the South. There he meets and shares a boarding house with Sophie, a Polish immigrant and concentration camp survivor and Nathan, her lover and an American Jew. The film looks at madness on two levels. The madness of a group, as represented by Nazi Germany, and the madness of the individual, as represented by Nathan’s mental illness. Because of Sophie’s personal journey and experience with both Nathan and Nazi Germany, your heart will break over what she endures, what she tries to overcome and her choice.
