Description

"It haunted me. I can't wait to see it again." - A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"A compact gem of perfection. A total marvel." - Dana Stevens, Slate

"Absolutely stunning, one of the year's best films." - Oliver Lyttleton, The Playlist

"Veteran Polish actress Agneta Kulesza creates the astonishing impression that some of history's most wrenching conflicts are being played out in a single human soul. Riveting, original and breathtakingly accomplished on every level, IDA would be a masterpiece in any era, in any country." - Godfrey Cheshire, RogerEbert.com

From acclaimed director Pawel Pawlikowski (Last Resort, My Summer of Love) comes IDA, a moving and intimate drama about a young novitiate nun in 1960s Poland who, on the verge of taking her vows, makes a shocking discovery about her past. This haunting film transports us to 1960s Poland, where an orphan named Anna (stunning newcomer Agata Trzebuchowska) is preparing to become a nun. Before Anna takes her vows, Mother Superior tells her to visit Wanda (Agneta Kulesza), her only living relative. A naïve Anna travels to meet her Communist aunt, who shocks her by revealing her Jewish heritage.

In this beautifully directed film, Pawlikowski returns to his native Poland for the first time in his career to confront some of the more contentious issues in the history of his birthplace. Powerfully written and eloquently shot, IDA is a masterly evocation of a time, a dilemma, and a defining historical moment; Ida is also personal, intimate, and human.
