Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Pawel Pawlikowski. 2013. 82 mins. 35mm. With Agata Kulesza, Agata Trzebuchowska, and Dawid Ogrodnik. Preparing to take her vows as a Catholic nun, Ida, a young woman orphaned during World War II, first goes forth into the venal world to tie up loose ends. Soon she encounters her hard-drinking, promiscuous aunt, an infamous state prosecutor in the Polish People’s Republic, who informs her that her parents were Jewish, sending Ida on an investigative journey to quite literally unearth her past. A haunted film of brittle, elegant beauty, Ida won deserved plaudits, including the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and its austere approach recently inspired Paul Schrader’s First Reformed.
