Alfonso Cuarón tells a deeply personal story with absolute precision in “Roma”

You rarely see such an intimate tale painted on such a large canvas. In telling a story based on his own youth, filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón has made an epic movie about the women in his life.

The film is a period piece drama, set in the early 1970’s.
