Examples of Sofia in a Sentence

  1. Tony Barson/FilmMagic -RRB- Loeb:

    The judge was clearly influenced by Hollywood, which is a pattern I expose in my upcoming film Roe v. Wade on April 2nd, it’s sad that Sofia, a devout Catholic, would intentionally create babies just to kill them.

  2. Eric Stonestreet:

    It’s the girls, Ariel, on our show, and Sarah and Sofia, he told FOX411. It’s rough, and people are really super mean, and they’re cowards on social media.

  3. Natalie Portman:

    It is true I've only made a few films with women, in my long career, I've only gotten the chance to work with female directors a few times. I've made shorts, commercials, music videos and features with Marya Cohen, Mira Nair, Rebecca Zlotowski, Anna Rose Holmer, Sofia Coppola, Shirin Neshat, and Natalie Portman. Unfortunately, the unmade films I have tried to make are a ghost history.

  4. Ezio Auditore da Firenze:

    When I was a young man, I had liberty, but I did not see it. I had time, but I did not know it. And I had love, but I did not feel it. Many decades would pass before I understood the meaning of all three. And now, the twilight of my life, this understanding has passed into contentment. Love, liberty, and time: once so disposable, are the fuels that drive me forward. And love, most especially, mio caro. For you, our children, our brothers and sisters. And for the vast and wonderful world that gave us life, and keeps us guessing. Endless affection, mia Sofia. Forever yours, Ezio Auditore.

  5. Jeffrey Steele:

    We wanted to work with the school — we were working with her IEP — because we were getting notes all the time about Sofia's behavior at school, this was concerning to us because we were seeing the same sort of negative behavior at home, and we told them that. We still did not know there was a mask on her face at this time.
