Movie Info

The most personal project to date from Academy Award (R)-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men, Y Tu Mama Tambien), 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. Cuarón's first project since the groundbreaking Gravity in 2013, ROMA will be available in theaters and on Netflix later this year.

[Roma is] a majestic feat of filmmaking, an intimate portrait of a family that also serves as a broad portrait of a changing nation. Cuaron creates such a vibrant world that it demands to be seen on the biggest canvas possible.

When looking to the past of history books or our own memories, individuals can recede into the fabric. Roma refocuses our attention...

A masterful achievement in filmmaking as an empathy machine, a way for us to spend time in a place, in an era, and with characters we never would otherwise.

A loving tribute to the dominant figure of his childhood, a domestic servant, and one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen (high-altitude language, but it's true).

Roma may only span a year or so, but somehow in that year is the entirety of life itself - its small, fleeting moments of joy and longer, more poignant stretches of heartbreak.

A richly textured masterpiece, Roma is cinema at its purest and most human.
