WED­NES­DAY

IDA 11.10PM, SBS1 ★★★★

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - NEWS -

A young woman or­phaned at an early age is about to be­come a nun. When word sur­faces Ida ( an as­ton­ish­ing per­for­mance by new­comer Agata Trze­bu­chowska) has one sur­viv­ing rel­a­tive, she is in­structed to leave the con­vent to learn a lit­tle about her­self. No, make that a lot. Though shot in a starkly fore­bod­ing black- and- white, the fi lm’s seem­ingly rigid lim­i­ta­tions turn out to be any­thing but. The word “master­piece” is never to be used lightly. How­ever, when a fi lm hits as hard as Ida, the ac­co­lade is more than apt.
