Roma trailer: This time we get a real look at Alfonso Cuarón‘s Netflix film

A few weeks ago we were given possibly the worst teaser ever released when Alfonso Cuarón gave us 70 seconds of mopped water being washed across a tiled floor for his new Roma film. It made watching paint dry seem like a far better choice. Now we have been given a proper look at what's to come and we even see who was mopping that floor. Exciting stuff. Seriously, it looks beautifully shot and will hopefully live up to expectation. Check out the trailer for Roma above to get a first glimpse.

Roma follows a young domestic worker Cleo from Mixteco heritage descent and her co-worker Adela, also Mixteca, who work for a small family in the middle-class neighbourhood of Roma. Mother of four, Sofia 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.

Yalitza Aparicio, Nancy García and Marina de Tavira and take the lead roles in the film.

Roma will première at Venice at the end of this month and should land on Netflix around mid-December.
