Must-See or Skippable? Ranking The 2019 Oscar Movies
It may seem odd to call a foreign language film the most watchable film nominated, but it’s well worth a look. Not only is it easily available to stream on Netflix, it’s also an absorbing look at life in 1970s Mexico. Following an upper-middle-class family’s maid and caretaker, the film is stunningly shot and perfectly visualized.
It leads the pack of nominated films with 10 nominations, and it deserves every one of them. The film’s performances are all beyond reproach, and its direction from Alfonso Cuaron is impeccable. It may not be in English, but Roma is one of the easiest things to watch this year. It’s also a remarkable achievement.
