Roma

10 Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actress

The most personal project to date from Academy Award-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men, Y Tu Mama Tambien), Roma follows Cleo, 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. (R, 135 mins)

Alfonso Cuarón’s masterpiece Roma, an autobiographical movie set in Mexico City in the 1970s, uses both intimacy and monumentality to express the depths of ordinary life. – Manohla Dargis, The NYTimes

Roma is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen, and one of the most moving. – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
