Sophie's Choice - 1982
Movie: Sophie's Choice - 1982
Director: Alan J. Pakula
Synopsis: In 1947, the story's narrator Stingo (Peter MacNicol), a young southern writer, travels to Brooklyn and takes a room in a boarding house. He is befriended by his upstairs neighbors Sophie Zawistowska (Meryl Streep) and her unpredictable lover Nathan Landau (Kevin Kline). As he becomes ever more deeply intwined in their lives he discovers their secrets.
Scene: Nathan's increasingly violent moods drive Sophie and Stingo, who is falling in love with her, to flee. His family have a peanut farm in Virginia. They spend the night together in a hotel on the way to the farm, where Sophie reveals her deepest secret, then returns to Brooklyn the next morning while Stingo is still sleeping.
Monogram: Although the hotel or it's location aren't revealed, we can assume from the monogram on the pillow case - the letters C and H flanking an image of the Capital dome - that they are in Washington - perhaps the Capital Hotel ?
