In 'Roma,' A Director Recreates The City — And The Caretaker — Of His Youth



The movie Roma revolves around Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), the live-in housekeeper and nanny for Señor Antonio (Fernando Grediaga) and Señora Sofia (Marina de Tavira) and their children (including Pepe, played by Marco Graf).

Alfonso Cuarón, now an Oscar-winning filmmaker, has a new movie set in his childhood neighborhood in Mexico City. But it’s really about the live-in nanny and housekeeper who helped raise him.
