This weekend marks the eighth-annual Cine Latino, a festival organized by the MSP Film Society showcasing Spanish- and Portuguese-language works. Things kick off with Roma, Alfonso Cuarón’s first release since 2013’s Gravity, one already generating Oscar buzz. The deeply personal film follows a housekeeper who works for a middle-class family in Roma, Mexico City, during the ’70s. Other selections include The Heiresses, about a shut-in who experiences a social and sexual awakening when she starts driving a group of gossipy elderly women to bridge club; Champions, which follows a man in a downward spiral who finds redemption while coaching a basketball team for special-needs adults; and Giant, which is based on a true story and examines the relationship between brothers who seek fame and fortune when one of them develops gigantism.
