Phenomenal

10/10 Ida is magnificent, it will stay with me a long time. The narrative is powerfully compelling and yet if it had been a non-narrative film I would have been spellbound by the images alone. ned-1-566995 from Brooklyn, NY via IMDB

Directed by Pawel Pawlikowski

Poland 1962. ANNA is a beautiful eighteen-year-old woman, preparing to become a nun at the convent where she has lived since orphaned as a child. She learns she has a living relative she must visit before taking her vows, her mother’s sister WANDA. Together, the two women embark on a voyage of discovery of each other and their past. Her aunt, she learns is not only a former hard-line Communist state prosecutor notorious for sentencing priests and others to death, but also a Jew. ANNA learns that she too is Jewish – and that her real name is IDA. This revelation sets ANNA, now IDA, on a journey to uncover her roots and confront the truth about her family. IDA has to choose between her birth identity and the religion that saved her from the massacres of the Nazi occupation of Poland. And WANDA must confront decisions she made during the War when she chose loyalty to the cause before family. Written by Paweł Pawlikowski and Rebecca Lenkiewicz, and directed by Pawlikowski (Last Resort, My Summer of Love), the film stars Agata Trzebuchowska as IDA.
