Friday Movie Matinee Discussion (Online) Online

Join us for a lively virtual discussion with Professor Tas Salini, Instructor of Film History and Film Appreciation at Broward College.

About the film

Sophie's Choice is a film based on the novel by William Styron. It follows Sophie Zawistowska, a Polish-Catholic survivor of Nazi concentration camps, who carries the weight of her past choices. Her relationship with Nathan Landau and her confessions to the young narrator, Stingo, reveal the impact of historical trauma.
