“Alfonso Cuarón has created a heartfelt masterpiece of mood and nostalgia, one that reminds us that his gifts as a storyteller and an interpreter of the human experience are not dictated by scale of production.”~The Wrap
Aroview: Another masterclass in storytelling from Mexican maestro Alfonso Cuarón, about a year in the life of a middle-class family's maid in Mexico City in the early 1970s. Based on his own childhood experiences and exquisitely filmed in black-and-white.

3 stars (Good Enough) Aka "Cleo from 5 to Bedtime". Aparicio as Cleo is terrific as a Jill of all trades to a well-off family - importantly she is the one with most control & influence over the children - which I would think is the main point the Director is trying to make.~tubbs
