Roma will debut on Netflix and in theatres later this year.
Roma, the latest film from Alfonso Cuarón, the Oscar-winning director of 2013’s “Gravity,” premiered to a standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival this week.
With 15 reviews from the film critics who saw it in Venice, Roma currently has a 93% “fresh” rating on the reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. The score places it behind 2017’s Mudbound as the second-highest rated Netflix original film of all time.
Here’s how Netflix described the film in a release:
“‘ROMA’ follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighbourhood of Roma in Mexico City. Delivering an artful love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil of the 1970s.” Read more
