Decision to offer Iberian Spanish subtitles for film set in Mexico City is ‘offensive’
The Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón has attacked Netflix’s decision to offer Iberian Spanish subtitles for his Mexico City-set film Roma, calling it “parochial, ignorant and offensive to Spaniards themselves”.
The semi-autobiographical film, which tells the story of Cleo, a maid to a middle-class Mexican family in the 1970s, has already won a string of awards and is nominated for a best film Bafta. It is also heavily tipped as an Oscars frontrunner.
