Autumn Girl

Warsaw in the 1960s: millions of Poles sit in front of their black and white TV sets. They’re riveted by Kalina Jędrusik (Maria Dębska in an outstanding performance), a phenomenal actress and singer who brings color to the otherwise bland reality of the country. She seduces with her charm and undeniable sex appeal. She electrifies men while enraging women. But Jędrusik doesn’t want to conform to the era’s concept of what a woman should be. She lives by her own rules, which are not always acceptable – not to a prudish society and not to certain influential people in positions of power. Numerous scandals, her love triangle with her husband Stanisław Dygat and Lucek, her controversial statements and sexy outfits earned Kalina the title of the most scandalous person in communist Poland. Director Katarzyna Klimkiewicz zooms in on a specific detail of Jędrusik's life, a seemingly minor episode which ended up having major consequences. This is a story of shadows and light, the ups and downs of her dizzying career, set against the backdrop of a crazy party scene in the world of high society of those times.
