Frida

In this biopic we meet Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. Born at the beginning of the twentieth century, Frida is a bold and confident woman in her day. She is crippled by an accident at the age of 18, which causes her to be bedridden for months. It is because of her immobilized state that she learns how to paint, and starts to create many of her famous self portraits. She is surrounded by the Mexican revolution and other fellow painters, like Diego Rivera, her husband, shape her life. This film feels more like a play and a work of art in itself. If you are in the mood for high level of visual entertainment along with a great story, this is the film to watch.
