The critically acclaimed drama is heading to Blu-ray in September. You can pre-order the film now.
In an early announcement to retailers, Music Box Films is preparing 'Ida' for Blu-ray on September 9.
18-year old Anna (stunning newcomer Agata Trzebuchowska), a sheltered orphan raised in a convent, is preparing to become a nun when the Mother Superior insists she first visit her sole living relative. Naïve, innocent Anna soon finds herself in the presence of her aunt Wanda (Agata Kulesza), a worldly and cynical Communist Party insider, who shocks her with the declaration that her real name is Ida and her Jewish parents were murdered during the Nazi occupation. This revelation triggers a heart-wrenching journey into the countryside, to the family house and into the secrets of the repressed past, evoking the haunting legacy of the Holocaust and the realities of postwar Communism.
Specs have not been detailed yet, but supplements will include: Q & A with the Director Collector's Booklet including writings from Pawel Pawlikowski and Sara Freeman; Behind the Scenes; and On the Set.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.95.
