A vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife, family dynamics, and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil in 1970’s Mexico City, Alfonso Cuarón’s semi-autobiographical Roma – his first film since his dual Academy Awards wins for directing and editing 2013’s Gravity – follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma. In the service of delivering this cinematic love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón serves not only as director but sole screenwriter, co-editor (along with Adam Gough), and cinematographer, shooting the proceedings in a sumptuous black-and-white that communicates both the mundanity of everyday life, and the richness and beauty found in the smallest details by a man reflecting on his childhood with newfound perspective and soulful appreciation.
A visually enthralling and deeply personal masterpiece, Roma has emerged as one of the best reviewed films of the year, taking home over 80 international film awards, and now nominated for three Golden Globes including Best Director and Best Foreign-Language Picture of the Year.
