It's shot in B&W, so there's that. Plus, this drama is getting some pretty great reviews.

From one of the gushier reviews:

"Riveting, original and breathtakingly accomplished on every level, Ida would be a masterpiece in any era, in any country." --Godfrey Cheshire, RogerEbert.com

Metacritic score: 89. RottenTomatoes score: 94.

***** I'll be in the lobby with a Meetup sign, before and after the movie. *****

NEW & IMPORTANT: In exchange for using their private room, La Madeleine now expects our group to spend around $50. If everyone gets a beverage and/or snack, we should be fine. More about the movie...

    It was great to meet you all. I was too tired afterwards to join in the conversation, but I promise I will next time. The subject matter of the film was unusual.

    A pretty good film whose ending that made up for a slow start, Ida made up for it (for me) with the excellent ideas and questions it brought up in discussion.
