Agata Trzebuchowska is a Polish actress who is quickly garnering international accolades for her debut performance as the title character in Pawel Pawlikowski’s Ida. Wide-eyed, but not necessarily naive, Trzebuchowska breathes life into the complex and troubled, young Ida.

The film itself secured an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, a Golden Globe nomination for Best Foreign Language Film and won “Best Film” at the European Film Award.
Ida has also won best film at the London Film Festival, the Telluride Film Festival, the Golden Lion winner at the Gdynia Film Festival, and the Critics Prize Winner at the Toronto Film Festival.
