The most personal project to date from Academy Award®-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón (GRAVITY, CHILDREN OF MEN, Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN), ROMA follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City.
Delivering an artful love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil of the 1970s.
"Lusciously shot in black and white, Roma is a paean to the Mexico City of the time. The recreation is impeccable. I know because this is my background, too." Click here to read a review by Ilan Stavans, Lewis-Sebring Professor of Humanities and Latin American and Latino Culture at Amherst College.
"Few directors tell large-scale stories with as much sensitivity as Cuarón, whose filmmaking style has grown more exhilarating as the expressive realism of his breakout movie, Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN, has been channeled into the restrained ostentation of his fantasies CHILDREN OF MEN and GRAVITY."–Manohla Dargis.
