What the critics are saying:
"Roma finds writer-director Alfonso Cuarón in complete, enthralling command of his visual craft - and telling the most powerfully personal story of his career." - Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
"This has plenty to say about class relations too, but what's most impressive about it is how the Mexican writer-director-cinematographer-editor transforms even his political observations into the stuff of big-screen spectacle." - Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"Roma captures, as well as any film I have seen, the spirit of "magical realism," without ever hinting at the supernatural. Its magic is pure, stunning cinematic technique." - Christopher Orr, the Atlantic
