The award winning Sophie’s Choice, starring Kevin Kline as Nathan Landau, Peter MacNicol as Stingo, and Meryl Streep as Sophie Zawistowski, was novel adapted drama released in 1982.  The film was well received by critics, with Roger Ebert adding it to his top 10 list for 1982.  Streep’s performance earned her an Academy Award, and the film went on to return a decent profit.

In this movie, it is just after WW II, and Polish immigrant Sophie (Streep), and her boyfriend Nathan (Kline), share an apartment with a friend they have recently met named Stingo (MacNicol), who is a novelist.  Sophie tells Stingo that her husband and father were killed in a Nazi concentration camp, where she herself spent time, but in reality they were Nazi sympathizers.  Sophie, on the other hand, was forced to go to Auschwitz, and the choice she had to make was which of her two children to send to the gas chamber.  She chooses her son to live, and the burden continued to weigh heavy on her mind. 

To top things off, Nathan is crazy, jealous, and neurotic.  By the end of the film, Sophie has had a short tryst with Stingo, but she once again returns to the schizophrenic Nathan.  Nathan and Sophie kill themselves by taking cyanide, and Stingo moves to a farm in rural Virginia to finish his novel.
