A Loving Semi-Autobiography of Childhood in Mexico City

Roma is a semi-autobiographical depiction of Cuaron's own childhood in Mexico City, and the settings and people that inhabited it. Led by a Oscar-Nominated debut performance by Yalitza Aparicio, it follows a domestic worker through the everyday and the heartbreaking aspects of family life. Recipient of 10 Oscar Nominations (including wins for Foreign Film, Best Director, and Best Cinematography), Roma is a meticulous and homely masterpiece from an auteur at the top of his craft.
