Last night I watched for the first time Frida, "A biography of artist Frida Kahlo, who channeled the pain of a crippling injury and her tempestuous marriage into her work".
I was not familiar with her work and am now a fan. That woman went through tremendous pain, emotionally and physically. The film itself is visually stunning with bright colors, paintings, thoughts and visions illustrated beautifully throughout the movie. I just adore Frida's costumes through the whole thing, such bright and vivid fabrics and gorgeous prints not to mention the most romantic looking underthings and gowns.
Salma Hayek did such a wonderful job with this role. I truly felt the thoughts and emotions of her and was moved to tears quite a few times. If you haven't seen this movie yet, I highly recommend it. It is a biography and more so a love story.
