AwardsIMDbMetaCriticRotten Tomatoes
A passion project for actress Salma Hayek, who spent seven years trying to get the movie made (and would eventually earn an Academy Award nomination for her performance) this biopic of the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo follows her difficult but inspiring path from the early 1920s into the 1950s. Directed with appropriately vivid aplomb by Julie Taymor (famous for the original stage production of The Lion King), Frida has plenty to say about a life of political conviction and bohemian fervour: Kahlo’s tempestuous marriage to Diego Rivera (Alfred Molina) doesn’t preclude trysts with Leon Trostky (Geoffrey Rush), Josephine Baker, et al, but more striking still are the spectacular paintings.
–Vancouver International Film Festival

“There’s no denying Hayek’s incendiary performance.” –Toronto Star
“A movie that seizes you up, catches fire and dances.” –Chicago Tribune
“Passionate, provocative, hilarious, tragic and just dizzyingly beautiful to behold.” –Detroit News
Cast Salma Hayek, Alfred Molina, Geoffrey Rush
