    The picture is completely devoid of cinematic interest, adopting instead a tiresome theatrical aesthetic in which showy monologues are filmed in interminable, usually ill-chosen long takes.

    Meryl Streep is flawless in this film which, in my opinion, is her best. The stories of her past, not only the camps but meeting Nathan, are told with heartbreaking truth and beauty. Kevin Kline is a wonderfully unlikable persona. The only flaw, to me, is Stingo. His vulnerability comes thru very well, but his character (or maybe his acting) just wasn't up to par with Streep and Kline. Sophie is one of the most memorable characters I've ever encountered in cinema. Full Review »
