The life and career of one of Mexico’s most prominent, iconoclastic painters comes to the screen under the guiding hand of producer/star Salma Hayek and director Julie Taymor in the Oscar-winning drama, Frida.

“Passionate, provocative, hilarious, tragic and just dizzyingly beautiful to behold.” – Susan Stark, Detroit News

Hayak ages some 30 years onscreen as she charts Frida Kahlo’s life from feisty schoolgirl to Diego Rivera protégée to world-renowned artist in her own right. Frida details Kahlo’s affluent upbringing in Mexico City, and her nurturing relationship with her traditional mother and philosophical father. Having already suffered the crippling effects of polio, Kahlo sustains further injuries when a city bus accident nearly ends her life. But in her bed-ridden state, the young artist produces dozens upon dozens of pieces; when she recovers, she presents them to the legendary — and legendarily temperamental — Rivera (Alfred Molina), who takes her under his wing as an artist, a political revolutionary, and, inevitably, a lover. But their relationship is fraught with trouble, as the philandering Rivera traverses the globe painting murals, and Kahlo languishes in obscurity, longing to make her mark on her own. (Dir. by Julie Taymor, 2002, USA/Mexico/Canada, in English/Spanish/French/Russian with English subtitles, 122 mins., Rated R)
