Academy Award-winning director Cuaron’s (Gravity, Children of Men, Y Tu Mama Tambien) luminous, lyrical drama is named for the Mexico City neighborhood of his childhood. Shot in widescreen black-and-white and set in the early 70s, the story charts a tumultuous year in the lives of a young, live-in maid (quietly stunning newcomer Yalitza Aparicio) and the upper-middle class family she works for and watches over.

Official selection: New York Film Festival; Golden Lion for Best Film – Venice Film Festival

“From the raw material of memory [Cuaron has] made something that nearly erases the difference between artifice and life, as well as the distance between past and present.” – A.O. Scott, The New York Times
