FRIDA is Julie Taymor and Salma Hayek's opulent new bio-pic about Mexican painter and twentieth-century icon Frida Kahlo (Hayek). The movie focuses on Kahlo's often rocky relationship with husband Diego Rivera (Alfred Molina). The high-wattage cast includes Antonio Banderas as David Siqueiros, Rivera's rival in the Mexican art world; Ashley Judd as the Italian photographer Tina Modotti; Edward Norton as Nelson Rockefeller, who famously contracted Rivera to paint the lobby mural of Rockefeller Center only to renege because it included a portrait of Lenin; and Geoffrey Rush as Leon Trotsky. "Bringing a fiery warmth and accessibility to the central role, [Hayek] proves a good match for the artist as she depicts Kahlo's indomitable will to live, love and paint." ~ Variety.
