A film by Paweł Pawlikowski
O Cinema Miami Shores @ MTC
Thursday, June 26 at 7:30pm
If you missed the Festival’s sold out Florida Premiere of Ida in January, than now is your chance to see the most critically acclaimed film of the year! Join us for a “Best of MJFF” special presentation on Thursday, June 26 at 7:30pm at O Cinema Miami Shores @ MTC to see what all the critics have been talking about, and why Ida has swept most of the international festivals top prizes. Winner of Best Film at the BFI London Film Festival and Grand Prix at the Warsaw International Film Festival, Pawel Pawlikowski’s (My Summer of Love, Last Resort) stunningly shot new film is an elegy for his homeland and a poetic exploration of the limits of faith. This deeply moving and achingly intimate drama is about a young novitiate nun in 1960s Poland who, on the verge of taking her vows, discovers a dark family secret dating from the terrible years of the Nazi occupation. Scene after scene is a masterly evocation of a time, a dilemma, and a defining historical moment. The weight of history is everywhere, but the scale falls within the scope of a young woman learning about the secrets of her own past. This intersection of the personal with momentous historic events is gauged to perfection in a film that will have everyone reaching for superlatives.
