Ida / Aug 22-24

August 15, 2014 - August 24, 2014

August 22-24  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.
18-year old Anna (stunning newcomer Agata Trzebuchowska), a sheltered orphan raised in a convent, is preparing to become a nun when the Mother Superior insists she first visit her sole living relative. Naïve, innocent Anna soon finds herself in the presence of her aunt Wanda (Agneta Kulesza), a worldly and cynical Communist Party insider. (2013; 83 min)

 

SCROLL DOWN FOR SCREENINGS OF IDA THROUGH AUGUST 24

Ida is a rarity, a film both intensely grounded in historical reality and genuinely otherworldly.–San Francisco Chronicle

Ida reaches spiritual depth through affecting performances rendered in sublime black-and-white compositions. –Chicago Sun-Times

One of the year’s gems. –The Chicago Tribune

Take the vow to dedicate your attention to Ida and you’ll be rewarded deeply. — IndieWIRE

Riveting, original and breathtakingly accomplished on every level, Ida would be a masterpiece in any era, in any country. –RogerEbert.com

A film of exceptional artistry whose emotions are as potent and persuasive as its images are indelibly beautiful. LA Times

IT HAUNTED ME. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE IT AGAIN –A.O. Scott, The New York Times

What makes Ida remarkable is how much Pawlikowski is able to accomplish in just 80 minutes, with a pair of mismatched female characters, a handful of wintry and desolate locations, the square-format cinematography of Ryszard Lenczewski and Lukasz Zal, and a soundtrack that combines modernism, Soviet-bloc pop music and a haunting performance of John Coltrane’s “Naima” that seems to capture all the emotional possibilities the characters cannot express. –Salon.com
