Roma has been nominated for ten academy awards including best picture. Set in the La Roma neighborhood of Mexico City in the 1970s, the film’s recreation of the place and time is shown through the eyes of Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a live-in domestic worker inspired by the one who helped to raise Alfonso Cuarón (the film’s director), and the family that employs her. Although the movie is not directly about the politics or social issues of the time period, they seep into the narrative, subtly at times, and dramatically, unmistakably, at others.
