2018 BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE PICTURE, DIRECTOR (Cuarón), and CINEMATOGRAPHY (Cuarón) – BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND
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 women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst the political turmoil of the 1970s. Cuarón’s first project since the groundbreaking Gravity in 2013.

“An immersive bath in some of the most luxuriantly beautiful black-and-white images you’ve ever seen, this is the work of a great filmmaker who exhibits absolute control and confidence in what he’s doing.” — Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
“Stunning in black and white, the film contemplates the ways in which Cleo’s bond with her employers can seem almost familial and the ways in which it emphatically isn’t. She is both never alone and always alone.” — Linda Holmes, NPR
“Roma follows in the tradition of neorealist filmmakers like Vittorio De Sica and Satyajit Ray. No one else is making movies like this today.” — Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine
