New Teaser Revealed For Alfonso Cuaròn New Directed Film ‘Roma’ | Film Trailer


Referred to as Alfonso Cuaròn‘s most personal film to-date, Roma debuts its first look within this black and white cut that follows a middle class family in the 1970 from Mexico City.


One of the most buzzed about film from the festivals season, Roma is the new movie by Academy award winner Cuaròn, who nabbed several Oscars with his 2014 Gravity.


According to the official synopsis, it follows “a young domestic worker Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio) and her co-worker Adela (Nancy García), 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, and 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”.


Described as the chronicle of a family’s turbolent year in the backdrop of the changes that Mexico was undergoing during the ’70s, the first teaser for Roma depicts haunting images of love, hope, courage and change.


The movie will be released through Netflix in selected theatres sometime this year. Given director Alfonso Cuaròn’s incredible talent to put ordinary people in front of extraordinary situations, I can see how this movie will strike a chord for its raw depiction of a family touched by the events of its time.
