Spanish-Language Film 'Roma' May Be The Best Of 2018

Herald-Banner movie critic Alice Reese says "Roma," a black-and-white drama about life in a Mexico City neighborhood in the 1970s, is being mentioned as a possible 2018 Academy Awards "Best Picture" contender.  It would be the first foreign language film to win the honor.  Alice likes "Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle," but says it's too violent for children and will not be in wide release.
