Ida

In Ida, a novice nun on the cusp of taking her vows discovers that she is not who she thinks she is. Orphaned as a child, her true identity has never been made known to her until she discovers that she is the daughter of two Jews slaughtered during the Holocaust. Following this revelation, she makes contact with her last living relative, a world-weary aunt named Wanda, whom she accompanies on a road trip to find her parents' final resting place. What ensues is a coming-of-age tale that explores not only Ida's loss of innocence and first exposure to "the real world", but also one that casts a look at a Polish society haunted by the spectres of World War Two. Exquisitely framed and masterfully told, Ida is an elegant, nuanced drama that deserves to be seen. Simply put, it's a wonder. / Amy O'Connor

The MART Academy

While MART as a collective has been about since 2006, their physical presence in Dublin is still relatively new. With their first studios in the old fire station only opening, last year, their empire has quickly grown, encompassing 3 different buildings, a multitude of studios, exhibition spaces, a market, cafe and performance venue and now MARTcademy, a one stop shop for budding, developing and established artists. Covering a wide range of artistic and creative disciplines, there’s everything from an intro to turkish art to singing for the terrified. And they’re such sweeties, they even promise tea and cake for participants (let’s be honest, that’s what we all want!)So try something new this autumn, and head towards Rathmines for a little MARTucation! / Beccy Fitzpatrick

A Most Wanted Man

A Most Wanted Man is Phillip Symour Hoffman’s last great onscreen performance. Based on the novel by British novelist John Le Carre, the film casts Hoffman as a German intelligence officer in Hamburg. Hamburg or course was the location that 9/11 conspirator Mohamed Atta lived prior to September's attacks, and the film sees German and American Intelligence officers desperately attempting to make up for their lapses in spy craft. Unlike the novel the film chooses to focus on Hoffman’s character (Bachmann) rather than the Chechen blow in. As such the film condenses many of the novels wider themes of moral ambiguity, Bush era trends of ‘Extraordinary Rendition’ and trims much of the meat of Le Carre’s novel. However Hoffman’s performance is an adequate trade off. Reflecting what Hoffman may have been like in his last days Bachmann is terse, but defiant. / Jack Broughan

A Girl is a Half-formed Thing

Condensing a novel for the stage is no easy feat, but somehow, as a multi-personality one woman show, it manages to transcend the florals that an arresting novel relies on, and establish itself as a strong piece of theatre. This is a pounding, emotional performance - it feels like Aoife Duffin is sweating, wringing out feelings and they splatter at her feet. The lighting is dank, like she is standing in a sewer-pipe, wet under foot. The play is very Irish - dirty uncles scuttle around the story like spiders evading the sinkhole, pagan Catholics cross and bless, cross and bless, and mothers thank and unthank, turning on a penny, never happy, never satisfied. This waking nightmare, no prosthetics, no effects, just turmoil and emotion, will set the invisible creep on your skin, and the edge of darkness on your dreams. / Kate Coleman

Hard Working Class Heroes

We got 850 characters to sort out your Thursday night at Hard Working Class Heroes - first - do not miss Soak. The first signing to CHVRCHES own label, she's got authenticity backing authenticity. Then, Dear Desert, recent discovery of ours who are making dreamy, synthy 80s inspired pop. They love Japan, the make-up wearing one, not the country in Asia. The Late David Turpin will be making death look as attractive as ever, whilst Carriages will have to pawning your carriage clock for more. There's also Paddy Hanna, one of our superfaves. There are several bands we don't know, but are well-named, so we'll probably see them on the strength of that alone - Mere Moths, Planet Parade and Neon Atlas, HOLLER. As if FMC's curators of cool aren't reason enough... / Kate Coleman
