Film Director

When Cuarón, long a powerful force in Hollywood and internationally, won the best director Oscar in 2014 for his 3D sci-fi thriller “Gravity,” it was the latest accolade for a technically daring, visually distinctive body of work that’s varied enough to include children’s book “A Little Princess” (his 1995 American feature debut), Dickens’ “Great Expectations,” the raunchy sex comedy “Y Tu Mamá También,” the franchise blockbuster “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” and the sci-fi drama “Children of Men.” The breadth of Cuarón’s films now expands even more and pivots into personal territory with the black-and-white “Roma,” about a family making their way in turbulent 1970s Mexico. It just took the Golden Lion in Venice, the same festival where “Gravity” made its debut.
