Netflix will release Academy Award(R) winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón’s ROMA, in over 100 theaters in the United States and more than 500 theaters internationally in over 40 countries around the release of the film on the streaming platform on December 14th.
The theatrical presentation of the film began in the United States and Mexico on November 21, already selling out theaters in New York, Los Angeles, Mexico City, London and Toronto, among others. ROMA will be in nearly 100 theaters throughout the country this weekend.
The most personal project to date from Academy Award(R)-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men, Y Tu Mama Tambien), ROMA follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City. Delivering an artful love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil of the 1970s. Cuarón’s first project since the groundbreaking Gravity in 2013.
ROMA premiered earlier this year at the Venice Film Festival where it took home the Golden Lion for best film and has played in nearly 70 film festivals to great acclaim worldwide. The film has received numerous accolades, including recently being named Best Picture of the year by the New York Film Critics Circle, a prestigious award from the American Film Institute and 3 Golden Globe Award nominations.
