TIME OUT SAYS
With his white-Knuckle sci-fi thriller Gravity, Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón extracted an intimate character study from the vastness of outer space. Now he goes in reverse: In his deeply personal black and white marvel, Roma.
An autobiographical elegy about his childhood and the women who raised him (one hardworking live-in maid in particular), Roma coalesces out of episodic recollections, digitally filmed with a crisp, grain-free appearance for unsentimental visual conviction. This is an absorbingly rich tribute to those resilient women, and you’ll be able to watch it on Netflix when it’s released on December 14. Tomris Laffly
