Based on director Alfonso Cuarón’s own childhood in a middle-class home in 1970s Mexico City, Roma is the gentle and intricate portrait of Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), the family’s housekeeper and nanny. An incredible work of social realism, Roma chronicles a year from Cleo’s perspective, featuring the emotional and domestic labor she provides to the family and her rare personal moments away from the home. Cuarón’s return to Mexico after 17 years in Hollywood, Roma is a magnificent example of a master telling a deeply personal story with impeccable craft. Remarkably photographed in gorgeous black and white (also by Cuarón) this film is mesmerizing in every aspect. Courtesy of Netflix.
