Roma Trailer

Alfonso Cuarón‘s Roma (2018) movie trailer stars Yalitza Aparicio, Nancy García, Marina de Tavira, Diego Cortina Autrey, and Carlos Peralta. Roma‘s plot synopsis: “ROMA chronicles a turbulent year in the lives of a middle-class family in 1970s Mexico City. Cuarón, inspired by the women from his childhood, delivers an artful ode to the matriarchy that shaped his world.

A vivid portrayal of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil, ROMA follows a young domestic worker Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio) from Mixteco heritage descent and her co-worker Adela (Nancy García), also Mixteca, who work for a small family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma. Mother of four, Sofia (Marina de Tavira), copes with the extended absence of her husband, Cleo faces her own devastating news that threatens to distract her from caring for Sofia’s children, whom she loves as her own. While trying to construct a new sense of love and solidarity in a context of a social hierarchy where class and race are perversely intertwined, Cleo and Sofia quietly wrestle with changes infiltrating the family home in a country facing confrontation between a government-backed militia and student demonstrators.

Filmed in luminous black and white, ROMA is an intimate, gut-wrenching and ultimately life-affirming portrait of the ways, small and large, one family maintains its balance in a time of personal, social and political strife.”

Fans of Gravity have been waiting for the follow-up to that film and Roma does not seem as though it will disappoint. It is so important, with the current climate in America, to see a Mexican protagonist, and a mother, shown in a positive light by one of the best directors working today.
