Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jan 27th at 7p for Roma (70mm) at the Coolidge Corner Theatre. Look for Shelly wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
The most personal project to date from Academy Award(r)-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuaron (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, Cuaron draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil of the 1970s.
Note: This 70mm presentation is a limited engagement, and 7pm is the only screening on Sunday. While it’s in the big house at the Coolidge, you may wish to buy your tickets in advance.
