Returning to his native Poland for the first time in his career, acclaimed filmmaker Pawel Pawlikowski (MY SUMMER OF LOVE) confronts the contentious history of his birthplace in this intimate drama about a young nun in 1960s Poland who, on the verge of taking her vows, makes a shocking discovery about her past. The revelation triggers a heart-wrenching journey into into the secrets of her family’s repressed past, evoking the haunting legacy of the Holocaust and the realities of postwar Communism. Powerfully written and eloquently shot, IDA is a masterly evocation of a time, a dilemma, and a defining historical moment.
