Streep attends 40th-anniversary screening of "Sophie's Choice"

I was surprised to see this headline today for two reasons. One, it's been over forty-one years since Sophie's Choice was released, and two, I had no idea this event was planned. At first, I thought it might just be a repeat article from a couple of years ago that I just didn't remember, but there are several outlets that have released articles on the night's event. 

Several big stars showed up at the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan last night for the screening. This news doesn't have a lot of significance as far as I can tell, but maybe it rejuvenates some interest Meryl as an exceptionally talented actor whom any director would be blessed to work with. I have a feeling Meryl already has a few things coming down the pike, and as I mentioned in my previous post, she's just kind of visible a lot more lately. It's like she's finally, if slowly, whetting our appetites for seeing something new and exciting of hers on screen. 

Streep with Sophie's Choice co-stars Kevin Kline and Peter MacNicol


  1. The greatest performance of all time.

  2. Agreed, she usually trims down when she's about to start filming something.

  3. Bring on the Silkwood 40th Anniversary screening/reunion!

    1. Now that's a good idea! Great movie and performances
