Cuaron’s first film since winning Academy Awards for directing and editing 2003’s Gravity, Roma scored three more Oscars for the Mexican filmmaker – Best Cinematography, Best Director, and Best Foreign Language Film of the Year.  A vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife, family dynamics, and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil in 1970’s Mexico City, the semi-autobiographical Roma follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma. In the service of delivering this cinematic love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón serves not only as director but sole screenwriter, co-editor (along with Adam Gough), and cinematographer, shooting the proceedings in a sumptuous black-and-white that communicates both the mundanity of everyday life, and the richness and beauty found in the smallest details by a man reflecting on his childhood with newfound perspective and soulful appreciation.
