Alfonso Cuarón's "Roma," Mexico (film)

JoBlo Movie Trailers, 11/13/18; Crystal Quintero, Ashley Wells (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

(Netflix) This is 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" (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 females 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. Now showing in Los Angeles for award contention in select theaters and on Netflix.
