On Saturday February 22nd at 7:00pm, we’re proud to present a 35mm print of Sophie’s Choice. Karina Longworth (author of Meryl Streep: Anatomy of an Actor) will be in attendance to introduce the film and talk about her book. This screening is FREE for Hollywood Theatre members. General admission advance tickets are here.
Sophie’s Choice (1982) Meryl Streep set new standards for acting excellence with her Oscar-winning turn as the beguiling, haunted and tragic Polish immigrant Sophie Zawistowski. Sophie is living in post-WWII Brooklyn with her charismatic but unhinged lover (Kevin Kline), and the object of affection for a sensitive young writer (Peter MacNicol). MacNicol dreams of new possibilities for Sophie and himself, especially as Kline’s character descends into madness, but Sophie’s mysterious past, including her experiences in Auschwitz, won’t let her go.
Meryl Streep: Anatomy of an Actor: One of the most talented actresses of her generation, Meryl Streep provides a high benchmark by which others are measured. In films such as The Deer Hunter, Silkwood, Sophie’s Choice and Adaptation, Streep has astounded audiences with her ability to fully inhabit characters. She has received 17 Academy Award nominations and 27 Golden Globe nominations – more nominations than any other actor in the history of either award.
