Ida

With awards from TIFF, London Film Festival, the American Society of Cinematographers and more, there's no doubt that "Ida" has been universally adored. But if you're looking for a more personal assessment, be sure to read our review, wherein Jessica Kiang calls it "a small, quiet, polished...thoughtful, artful film." And today, we have an exclusive look at the film, that highlights the controlled beauty Pawel Pawlikowski brings to his film.

Led by Agata Trzebuchowska, the film tells the story of 18-year-old orphan Anna, raised in a convent, who is preparing to become a nun when she's told she must first visit her only living relative, Aunt Wanda. It leads to Anna discovering her Jewish past, learning her real name, heritage and the fate of her parents too. And in this clip, we see Anna not only out of place with herself, but also the world around her, with the simple scene unfolding with many layers, while highlighting the gorgeous black-and-white cinmeatography.

"Ida" opens in limited release on May 2nd. Watch below.
