Roma: The view from Mexico City
Alfonso Cuarón's Roma is one of the leading Oscar contenders this year with 10 nominations. The film has no A-list stars, it's almost entirely in Spanish and Indigenous languages, and it's shot in black and white. On top of that, you can't find Roma in most theatres because it's a Netflix production.
While the film's themes are unmistakably Mexican, Roma has a universal appeal. Film critic Fernanda Solórzano and CNET's Spanish language editor Gabriel Sama join Tom Power to take a closer look at the buzzed about film.
