Roma (15)

2018, Mexico, Dir. Alfonso Cuaron, 135 minutes

Alfonso Cuarón’s semi-autobiographical film is already recognised as one of the great films of the first decade of the 21st century. Gorgeously filmed in black and white and set in Mexico City in 1970/1971 events centre around a professional family and their housekeeper, Cleo. Much of what we witness is peculiar to the family but political protests on the city’s streets intrude. It is a study of a bourgeois family, but also examines how indigenous Mexicans have been oppressed. It is a film packed with unforgettable moments. If you caught Roma on Netflix, treat yourself by seeing it on the big screen. If you haven’t yet seen it then you absolutely must.
