IDAb&ws

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, discovers a dark family secret dating from the terrible years of the Nazi occupation.

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. The weight of history is everywhere, but the scale falls within the scope of a young woman learning about the secrets of her own past. This intersection of the personal with momentous historic events makes for what is surely one of the most powerful and affecting films of the year.

Winner of 46 International awards.

★★★★★ ‘There is not a frame in this austere spiritual journey that isn’t a thing of heartfelt beauty’. Times
★★★★★ ‘It’s immaculately, even a little self-consciously, a masterwork’. Daily Telegraph
★★★★★ ‘Pawlikowski paints his world with disarmingly delicate brushstrokes’. Total Film
