Beautiful film, wonderful acting – gorgeous movie!
“Sophie and the Rising Sun” is a beautifully filmed movie with excellent acting – Margo Martindale and Lorraine Toussaint are particularly strong and give outstanding performances. Visually the film is gorgeous. Wolfgang Held brings magic to the screen with his incredible rich and intense cinematography. Though the story is set in a different time period it vibrates with relevance to today. Sophie comes to us at a time when we can only benefit by the questions it raises. You leave the film with the sad recognition that what was once still exists today. Prejudice and bigotry remains.
Engulfed in a time period
I truly enjoyed this romance story. I felt as if i was in the 1930s . Well done to all the cast and crew. Thank you for this film .
