Awarded the “best film of 2018” by most of the film critics in the U.S. (incl. New York, L.A., Chicago, Seattle, Boston, Kansas City, North Carolina, et. al.) – ROMA finds writer -director Alfonso Cuaron (“Y tu Mama Tambien”, “Gravity”) in complete, enthralling command of his visual craft – telling the most powerfully personal story of his career.

Synopsis: A story that chronicles a year in the life of a middle-class family’s maid in Mexico City in the early 1970’s, that parallels Cuaron’s remembrance of his own family experience.  The sequences and scenes unfold with a naturalistic realism that is simply astounding.
