Academy Award Winner Alfonso Cuarón has a new project on the horizon, this time alongside entertainment streaming giant Netflix. The film is titled Roma and is somewhat a departure from what the director has put out recently with Children of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Best Film Oscar Winner Gravity. In fact, Roma takes Cuarón fans back to Mexico as experienced in his breakout movie Y Tu Mamá También.

The official synopsis of Roma is as follows:

A vivid portrayal of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil, ROMA follows a young domestic worker Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio) from Mixteco heritage descent and her co-worker Adela (Nancy García), also Mixteca, who work for a small family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma. Mother of four, Sofia (Marina de Tavira), copes with the extended absence of her husband, Cleo faces her own devastating news that threatens to distract her from caring for Sofia’s children, whom she loves as her own. While trying to construct a new sense of love and solidarity in a context of a social hierarchy where class and race are perversely intertwined, Cleo and Sofia quietly wrestle with changes infiltrating the family home in a country facing confrontation between a government-backed militia and student demonstrators.

Done in black and white, the film is looking to be a sure Oscar contender with a release date poised to have members of the Academy take notice. It’s slated to release sometime late this year on Netflix but will also have a limited showing in theaters.

In other entertainment news, Disney and Marvel just confirmed that James Gunn will not be returning as Guardians of the Galaxy director.
