Ida

I think Ida would win the award for the most beautiful road movie ever made.

Every shot is so perfectly framed and lit (in black & white) – absolutely breathtaking.

Ida is a young novitiate preparing to take her vows, but is first forced to find out about her family before taking the final step. She sets out on this journey against the backdrop of a Poland unpicking itself from the fingers of Stalinism, with a conflicted history and an eye towards the West for its future.

A film that had been heaped with praise from the festival circuit, and one which did not disappoint at all.

Stunning.
