We’re back from Sundance, and Kim Masters shares a snapshot of her big Sundance adventure: appearing in the Alex Gibney documentary Going Clear. Then, director Pawel Pawlikowski has made movies in the UK and France. Ida is his first film from his home country, Poland. He made it with the modest hope that it would play at arthouse theaters in Europe and maybe a few festivals. Now his film about a young nun in training who finds out that she is in fact Jewish is up for Oscars for Best Foreign Language Picture and Best Cinematography.
