2015 Academy Award Best Foreign Language Film
Orphaned by war but now a young Catholic novitiate on the verge of taking her final vows, Anna discovers not only her original name and her Jewish ancestry, but a hidden and dark family secret. Her story unfolds in Poland of the 1960s--doubly scarred by Nazi occupation during WWII and Communist brutalities afterwards--but it speaks to a more deeply human story of commitment, doubt, identity, frailty and resolve that transcends its time and place.
