Alfonso Cuarón follows the footsteps of a young domestic worker for a family in Mexico City’s middle-class Roma neighborhood. Delivering a love hymn to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of social hierarchy in Mexico, amidst the political turmoil of the 1970s. The Golden Lion that this Netflix production received in the latest Venice Biennale has changed radically the whole landscape of film industry.
