One week out from the beginning of its theatrical run, another trailer is here for “Gravity” and “Children of Men” director Alfonso Cuaron’s new semi-autobiographical drama feature “Roma” which will be released on Netflix on December 14th.
The story covers a turbulent year in the life of a young domestic worker Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio) who works for a middle-class family in Mexico City in the 1970s. She struggles to find contentment in ‘love and solidarity’ within her community, all while facing the daunting issues of social hierarchy and economic class prejudices.
Filmed in black and white, the project hails from producers Gabriela Rodriguez, Nicolas Celis, and Cuaron himself. The film has scored many of the best reviews of the year for a major feature and is expected to be a serious awards contender.
