There’s more buzz surrounding Alfonso Cuarón’s latest masterpiece…
Netflic has released a dramatic new trailer for the 56-year-old Mexican filmmaker’s latest film, Roma, which is set to the build-up of wails in the Pink Floyd classic “The Great Gig In The Sky.”
Roma, written and directed by Cuaron, 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.
Produced by Esperanto Filmoj and Participant Media, Roma will have exclusive limited theatrical engagements starting November 21 in Los Angeles, New York and Mexico. Additional engagements in U.S. cities, Toronto and London will begin November 29 with other top U.S. markets and international territories continuing to roll out beginning December 5.
The film will be released globally on Netflix on December 14 with an expanded theatrical release in the U.S. and international markets.
Earlier this month, Cuarón was asked how he discovered Roma’s lead Aparicio for her first screen role. “I didn’t find her — she was always there,” Cuarón said, adding, “I was very lucky to meet with her.”
