KING'S FILM SOCIETY PRESENTATION

10 ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATIONS INCLUDING BEST PICTURE AND BEST DIRECTOR

In his deeply personal black-and-white marvel Roma, Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men) observes the smallest parts first, before expanding to gradually reveal the social and political canvas of 1970s Mexico City. An autobiographical elegy about his childhood and the women who raised him, Roma coalesces around episodic recollections, filmed with visual conviction.

The domestic helper at the heart of the story is the gentle-natured Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), who works for the affectionate but occasionally livid Sofia (Marina de Tavira) and the rest of her family. Cuarón honours Cleo’s unsung rituals: cleaning, looking after Sofia’s four children whom she loves like her own, interacting with her best friend and co-worker Adela, going on movie dates with her self-absorbed boyfriend, and so on.

At first, the lives of Cleo and Sofia run on parallel yet detached lines, save for regular household interactions and cozy evenings spent in front of the tv, where Cleo is treated as part of the family. But when a marital separation and an unwanted pregnancy upset the lives of the two women, their fates cross paths in a real sense for the first time. And, as the world around their new found female solidarity slowly crumbles, Roma’s physical and emotional scope grows and deepens.

“There’s no other way to say it than to say it: “Roma” is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen, and one of the most moving.”A richly textured masterpiece, Roma is cinema at its purest and most human.”
–The Wall Street Journal

“At times it feels novelistic, a densely realised, intimate drama giving us access to domestic lives developing in what feels like real time. In its engagingly episodic way, it is also at times like a soap opera or telenovela. And at other times it feels resoundingly like an epic.”
– The Guardian
