Netflix's Acclaimed 'Roma' Has Nothing to Do With Italy or Gypsies

By

If you're active on Netflix, chances are you've come across Roma, the black-and-white film that's been making waves and breaking bounds throughout the awards circuit. Set in 1970s Mexico, the film tells the story of Cleo, a live-in housekeeper to a middle-class family. 

Roma has received tons of praise since premiering at the Venice International Film Festival last summer. From garnering a prestigious Golden Lion promptly after its first screening to currently leading at the Academy Awards with 10 nominations, it's an unmissable viewing for anyone catching up on last year's films ahead of the Oscars.
