Pawel Pawłikowski's stunning monochrome drama 'Ida' won the Oscar and BAFTA for Best Foreign Language Film in 2015.
1960s Poland. A noviciate nun, about to take her vows in the Catholic Church, is told by her Mother Superior that she will be accepted into the church after she has visited her aunt. The young and prim Anna soon finds herself in the presence of the middle-aged Wanda, her mother's sister, a raven-haired sensualist. It is here that her past - and her real name, Ida - is revealed to her for the first time. This triggers a remarkable journey into the countryside, to the family house, and to secrets that Pawlikowski ruthlessly exposes.
