We were pleased that Polish director Pawel Pawlikowski's stunning Ida — probably our favorite film of 2014 — was nominated for an Oscar last week in the Foreign Language Film category. Even better, Ida broke free of the "foreign film" domain to earn another well-deserved Oscar nomination for Cinematography, a category typically dominated by big-budget Hollywood films.
Those who missed Ida's September screenings presented by Chalmette Movies and Shotgun Cinema will get more chances to see the film starting this Saturday, January 24, at the Indywood Theater, 628 Elysian Fields Avenue. Ida will screen from the 24th through the 28th each night at 9:00 p.m., and on the 29th at 7:00 p.m. More info here.
