Months of Meryl: Sophie's Choice

"This is the best Streep performance ever captured on film. "That's all."" - Dorian

"I support this movie, partially because I loved the Styron novel and, along with Schindler's List, it's one of the best American movies to teach people about the holocaust. Streep is sublime in it, and it's such a great role - she gets to play Sophie before the war, during the war, after the war, etc. " - Tom

Her next vehicle is a Diablo Cody script with Jonathan Demme at the helm.

I would love an alternate version of this movie where Anne Hathaway slaps the crap out of her LOL.

That wig is one of the all time bests. Part of me wishes Meryl would rock that silver do as herself.

Please bore someone else with your ... questions.

This is why this role and performance is so sublime and rates one of top spots in Meryl's filmography. She acts most of it with her eyes. Brilliant. My fav screen bitchery: "Go!" to the taxi driver at the end of the movie.

Yeah, it's a role anyone can't help but admire. Iconic character. I'm glad she changed so much because Book-Miranda is nothing but annoying imo.
I love how she included it in her speech for the Golden Globe that year:
" ‘Cause its amazing how much you can get if you quietly, clearly and authoritatively demand it! That’s all."

That silver wig is one of her best looks.
I also loved when Andy first corrected her with the name. GOD, that SMILE!
