Agata Kulesza may be the biggest discovery in recent Polish cinema. Charismatic, vibrant and versatile, she plays equally well with minimalist psychological creations and with comical frolics, verging on grotesque. For the past few years, she has kept her position as top Polish actress, and each consecutive role seems to be better than the last. She knew that she wanted to be an actress by the second year of high school. As a child, she would take part in dance classes at Szczecin community centre, practising ballet and dance. After completing high school, she applied to National Higher Theatre School in Warsaw, succeeding on her first attempt. She made her TV debut while still at Theatre School-in series Goodbye Rockefeller. She graduated from the Theatre Academy in 1994, with distinction. She stars in Polish and German TV series, as well as in TV theatrical productions. She also made her first feature appearance at the time, playing the young film director in Man of by Konrad Szoajski. The beginnings of her acting career do not hint at her future outstanding roles. She performs at Dramatyczny Theatre in Warsaw, and makes her living by playing minor parts in various TV series. Her career took off with the Film My roast Chickens by Iwona Siekierzynska, in which Kulesza played Magda, young woman going through a marriage crisis. Film, realize as part of the Generation 2000 TV series, bring her awards at Prowincjonalia Polish Film Festival in Wrzesnia and at the Young and Cinema Debut Film Festival in Koszalin. In 2003, she appeared in Seven Stops on Way to Paradise, independent production by Ryszard Maciej Nyczka, with whom she also collaborated on the sets of Thousand Sighs Park and Fortune Watches for You in Forest. In 2004, she acted in Petrol by Filip Bajon, and two years later-in Foundation by the same director. Over her career she has dubbed over 20 animated films, such as Howl's Moving Castle and Snow White by Tarsem Singh. She mostly gains popularity, however, due to her role in the TV series Pensjonat pod Roza, in which she acted between 2004-2006, and thanks to some of her other creations on TV. After 2011, it was all downhill. First she appeared in the role of mother of the main character in Jan Komasas Suicide Room, playing a successful woman who had a hard time coping with her sons ' alienation. After that, she makes a truly revelatory appearance in Wojciech Smarzowski's rise. It is a film about a woman from Masuria who loses her husband to war, and a startling story about violence and love born from ashes. For this role, Kulesza received the Polish Film Award for Best Leading Actress. A year later, she received the Warsaw Feliks Award for her role in the spectacle Merylin Mongo, directed by Bogusaw Linda for Ateneum Theatre.
