Ida (2013)

Paweł Powilkowski directs Agatha Trzebuchowska, Agata Kulesza and Dawid Ogrodnik in the monochrome arthouse drama about a nun exploring Iron Curtain Poland before she takes her vows.

Beautiful B&W cinematography. Sexy nun. Sexier alcoholic bureaucratic aunt. A road trip. An investigation into the holocaust. And guilt. Tragedy. Romance. Decisions. A real breath of fresh air to sit on the couch with my wife and enjoy this human, subtle piece of moviemaking amid my own self inflicted big dumb blockbuster catch-up.
