This biopic of Mexican surrealist artist Frida Kahlo (Salma Hayek) is a beautiful work of art in itself. Channeling the pain of a crippling injury and her tempestuous marriage to famed muralist Diego Rivera (Alfred Molina) into her work, Kahlo struggled for recognition but only received it after her death; today her portraits are among the most valuable ever painted in Latin America. With Geoffrey Rush as Leon Trotsky. Production designer Felipe Fernandez del Paso was nominated for an Oscar for his brilliant and memorable work on the film.
