Review: Roma

Review: Roma

It’s Oscars season and we’re reviewing the Academy’s big category picks. ‘Roma’ (starring  Yalitza Aparicio) is directed by Alfonso Cuaron and has nominations for Best Picture, Best Actress (Aparicio), Best Supporting Actress (Marina de Tavira) Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Original Screenplay and more.

The synopsis:

A year in the life of a middle-class family’s maid in Mexico City in the early 1970s.

We put the movie through our critically acclaimed rating system, which grades based on four categories:

1. Did we like it?

2. How did everyone look?

3. Will we steal stuff from it?

4. Is it problematic?
