Academy Award®-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón is responsible for wonderful films ranging from the small and intimate (Y Mama Tambien) to the gritty (Children of Men) and wistful science fiction (Gravity).
Loosely based on events from his own life, ROMA is a love letter to the women who raised him.
ROMA will have an exclusive theatrical release in Los Angeles, New York and Mexico, then expanding to several American cities, Toronto and London before premiering on Netflix on December 14th.
Roma chronicles a turbulent year in the lives of a middle-class family in 1970s Mexico City. Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men), inspired by the women from his childhood, delivers an artful ode to the matriarchy that shaped his world.
Roma will have its Canadian Premiere at TIFF 2018 and on Netflix later this year.
A hopeful journey to seek a better life becomes a harrowing and primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante chases a group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous U.S.-Mexican border in Jonas Cuarón’s Desierto.
Desierto stars Gael García Bernal and Jeffrey Dean Morgan and was written, directed, edited and produced by Jonás Cuarón. It will be in theaters on March 4, 2016.
Despite a pilot with potential, Believe (NBC, Sundays, 9/8C) has been pretty average over its first three weeks. With tonight’s episode, White Noise, that begins to change. In tonight’s ep, Bo and Tate are in Philadelphia for, as it turns out, more than hiding from Skouras and the police. The plot, as they say, thickens.
NBC’s new paranormal series, Believe (tonight, 10/9C – then Sundays, 9/8C)), is unusual in that it’s creative minds includes the like of J.J. Abrams (Lost, Start Trek), Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity), Bryan Burk (Person of Interest), Jonas Pate (Deception, Caprica) and Hans Tobeason (Damages, V). That means it has a lot to live up to – and it pretty nearly succeeds.
Bo (Johnny Sequoyah) is a little girl who has unusual, if erratic, abilities – abilities that may one day determine the fate of our world. There are powers that would try to bend her to their will and, thereby, control the world. These forces are commanded by a creepy gentleman called Skouras (Kyle MacLachlan).
Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity can be seen in many ways. Just from a Christian sensibility, it could be taken as either a resurrection story or an expulsion from Eden tale. It could be a tale of birth or rebirth. Or, it could simply be a shipwreck tale. On every level, however you view it, it is a brilliant film by a man whose last three movies – Y Tu Mamá También, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Children of Men – have been masterpieces.
Slowly, more and more trailers and clips from Comic-Con 2013 are making their way into the general populace – like Alfonzo Cuaron’s Gravity, for which Warner Brothers released two minutes of mounting tension. that you can see following the jump.
