Winner of awards at the London and Toronto film festivals last year, and earning great acclaim pretty much anywhere it showed up, Pawel Pawlikowski‘s “Ida” is a movie you don’t want to miss. And today, we’re here to make sure at least a few lucky readers get a chance to catch up with it.
Starring newcomer Agata Trzebuchowska, the 1960s set movie follows 18-year old Anna, raised as an orphan in a convent, who is sent to visit her last living relative, Aunt Wanda (Agata Kulesza). From her she learns that her real name is Ida and her Jewish parents were murdered during the Nazi occupation. And so begins a complicated journey of memory and identity for Ida, with Pawlikwski’s movie one we called “striking and evocative.” So how can you get your hands on a copy of the film?
