Music Box Films is proud to announce that Pawel Pawlikowski’s highly acclaimed IDA which masterfully tells the story of a young novitiate nun in 1960’s Poland who makes a shocking discovery will return to Cinema Village this Friday, December 19.  The showtimes will be 3:20 p.m. and 7:20 p.m daily. IDA is also available on DVD and Blu-Ray as well as on iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu, Youtube, Netflix and Amazon Prime.

IDA is Poland’s official entry for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.  It is nominated for a Golden Globe, Independent Spirit Award, BFCA Award for Best Foreign Language Film and recently won 5 European Film Awards including Best Picture, Director, Screenplay, Cinematography and the People’s Choice Award.  It also won the Best Foreign Language Film from the New York Film Critics Circle, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association (along with a Best Supporting Actress win for Agata Kulesza) and the San Francisco Film Critics Circle (along with Best Cinematography).

18 year-old Anna (phenomenal newcomer Agata Trzebuchowska), a naïve orphan raised in a convent, is told that before she can take the habit she must visit her sole living relative – her aunt Wanda (Agata Kulesza), a worldly and cynical Communist Party insider. After Wanda reveals to Ida the shocking news that her parents were Jews that were murdered during the Nazi occupation, the two set off to the countryside to find their final resting place, confronting the ghosts of the Holocaust amid the realities of postwar Communism. Powerfully written and eloquently shot, IDA is a stunning evocation of a personal and intimate journey set against the background of a defining historical moment.
