A frontrunner for this year's Best Picture, Best Director and Best Foreign Language Film Oscars®, ROMA is the most personal project to date from Academy Award®-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón (CHILDREN OF MEN, GRAVITY, Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN). Following Cleo (breakout star Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City, Cuarón delivers an artful love letter to the women who raised him, drawing on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst the political turmoil of the 1970s. (Note adapted from Netflix.) DIR/SCR/PROD Alfonso Cuarón; PROD Nicolás Celis, Gabriela Rodriguez. Mexico/U.S., 2018, b&w, 135 min. RATED R
