The film follows Cleo, a young live-in domestic worker, played by first-time actress Yalitza Aparicio, who works for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma, where Cuaron had grew up.

Critics worldwide have lavished acclaim on 'Roma'. Variety praised 'Roma' as "a luminous vision" while The Guardian declared that "Roma is [Cuaron's] best film so far: a thrilling, engrossing and moving picture with a richly personal story to tell, beautifully and dynamically shot in pellucid black and white."

Also, in a surprising turn of events, Netflix has decided to theatrically release 'Roma' in selected territories. Netflix most recently announced that 'Roma' will be theatrically shown in Korea, following news of its theatrical showing in the US and UK.
