Actress Joanna Kulig is making waves in Hollywood with her star-making turn in the romantic drama “Cold War.”

Critics have called the 36-year-old the “Polish Jennifer Lawrence” and compared her to 1960s-era Jeanne Moreau.

In the film, which has been short-listed for a foreign language Oscar, Kulig plays a Polish singer named Zula who has a tormented romance with the musician who discovers her.

The 36-year-old is now navigating awards season in Hollywood, her third trimester of pregnancy and has already filmed a part in the Amazon series adaptation of “Hanna.”
