Roma

Schedule

Sunday, Nov. 11 at 9:00pm
Tivoli Theatre

The most personal project to date from Academy Award®-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón (“Children of Men,” “Y Tu Mama Tambien”), “Roma” follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood 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. Cuarón’s first project since the groundbreaking “Gravity” in 2013, “Roma” will be available in theaters and on Netflix later this year. Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Joseph Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal describes Cuarón’s “Roma” as “a loving tribute to the dominant figure of his childhood, a domestic servant, and one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen (high-altitude language, but it’s true).”
