FRIDA

FRIDA

Salma Hayek had to fight off Madonna and Jennifer Lopez to play one of the world’s most flamboyant painters.  Then she had to grow a moustache and a monobrow…

From a traumatic accident as a teenager came the pain and vision which inspired the surrealist paintings of Mexico’s most famous artist Frida Kahlo. Her marriage to muralist Diego Rivera is portrayed as an adoring, dysfunctional yet mutually supportive relationship driven by extra mural (no pun intended!) love affairs, ideological passions and the relentless pursuit of a creative life.
