EP. 28 — Sophie’s Choice

This week Paul & Amy travel back to 1982’s love triangle / Holocaust drama Sophie’s Choice! They ask whether Stingo is supposed to be an actual good writer, marvel at the energy of a young Kevin Kline, and break down what makes Meryl Streep’s work in this film so legendary. Plus: dialect coach Samara Bay (Loving, Wonder Woman) talks to Paul about the intricacies of nailing an accent-based performance.
