Ida Low ResShortly before taking her vows, an orphaned novitiate in 1950s Poland, meets an aunt she didn’t know existed. Wanda’s entrance into Ida’s circumscribed life brings shocking news that changes everything, and this revelation begets a journey—both literal and figurative. Poland’s history during World War II, with its abundant horrors, figures prominently in both women’s lives.  The film presents an implicit argument  between faith and materialism, one that’s revealed with wit, conviction and generosity of spirit. Poland, 2013, 80 minutes, in Polish with English Subtitles, rated PG
