Ida, Paweł Pawlikowski's latest and wildly successful feature film about a nun who unexpectedly discovers she is Jewish, has been nominated for a Golden Globe Award in the Best Foreign Film category
Ida has been selected among 53 foreign language contenders, and seems to be poised for a win. Indiewire's Awards editor Peter Knegt gives it as his top prediction, echoing several voices which state that the film's meteoric success will conclude with both a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for best foreign film.
This month only, the New York Film Critics Circle has awarded Ida as the best foreign language film. The Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards has also awarded Agata Kulesza for best supporting actress and Ida for best foreign film.
The films follows its title character Ida (Agata Trzebuchowska), who lived most of her life in a monastery. Upon deciding to become a sister of mercy, she must first make the acquaintance of her only living relative before taking her vows. This prerequisite leads to the postponement of her decision, as the result of the clash of personalities that ensues after meeting her aunt Wanda (Agata Kulesza).
Ida will compete for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Award with films such as Tourist by Ruben Östlund, Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem by Ronit and Shlomi Elkabetz, Leviathan by Andrei Zvyagintsev and Tangerines by Zaza Urushadze.
