Directed by Andrzej Wajda | 2013

With Robert Wieckiewicz, Agnieszka Grochowska, Iwona Bielska, Zbigniew Zamachowski, Maria Rosaria Omaggio

“A movie with terrific force and irresistible storytelling gusto—and a first-rate lead performance by Robert Wieckiewicz.”
—The Guardian

Cinema titan Andrzej Wajda (Ashes and Diamonds, Katyn) helms this breathlessly paced biopic about Polish national hero Lech Wałęsa, who rose from shipyard worker to become leader of Poland’s Solidarity movement and its first democratically elected president. Anchored by a captivating central performance from Robert Wieckiewicz, Wajda’s film moves along at a crackling speed that transmits the of-the-moment thrill of history unfolding.
