With his eighth and most personal film, ALFONSO CUARÓN (Children of Men) recreated the early-1970s Mexico City of his childhood, narrating a tumultuous period in the life of a middle-class family through the experiences of Cleo (YALITZA APARICIO, in a revelatory screen debut), the indigenous domestic worker who keeps the household running. Charged with the care of four small children abandoned by their father, Cleo tends to the family even as her own life is shaken by personal and political upheavals. Written, directed, shot, and coedited by Cuarón, Roma is a labour of love with few parallels in the history of cinema, deploying monumental black and white cinematography, an immersive soundtrack, and a mixture of professional and nonprofessional performances to shape its author’s memories into a world of enveloping texture, and to pay tribute to the woman who nurtured him.

Highlight Reel - Best of films 2018

As soon as I heard the Criterion Collection were releasing this amazing film I knew I had to pick it up. I'm a huge fan of Alfonso Cuarón and this just might be his best work to date. I'm also a huge physical media collector and support companies like Zavvi where I can, especially as their prices are competitive and the early access to new exclusive releases is an excellent feature for Red Carpet members. A+
