Storyline

In the last store in a defunct shopping mall, 91-year-old Sonia Warshawski - great-grandmother, businesswoman, and Holocaust survivor - runs the tailor shop she's owned for more than thirty years. But when she's served an eviction notice, the specter of retirement prompts Sonia to revisit her harrowing past as a refugee and witness to genocide. A poignant story of generational trauma and healing, BIG SONIA also offers a laugh-out-loud-funny portrait of the power of love to triumph over bigotry, and the power of truth-telling to heal us all.

User Reviews

 
A new, intriguing story about survival
4 December 2017 | by sscheulerSee all my reviews

This movie was not what I was expecting but it had more than I was expecting in many ways -- all very good. Knowing about the main character's background, I knew it was about survival, but I didn't know how much more I would learn about how to survive, but mostly how to thrive despite your past. I also was incredibly moved by the inspirational other story lines. So glad that I didn't think "oh, here's another take on a familiar story." Well done!
