Frida

  • Hillcrest Centre Bay Vue Road Newhaven, England, BN9 9LH United Kingdom (map)

Saturday 26 August 6pm

This is the dramatised true story of iconic artist, Frida Kahlo (Salma Hayek) and her husband Diego Rivera (Alfred Molina), the larger-than-life painters who became the most acclaimed artists in Mexican history, and whose tempestuous love affair and outrageous personalities made them legendary. The film chronicles the turbulent period of 1920s & 1930s when socialism was the fashionable cause for the art world until the arrival of Stalin. The political issues of the era are front and centre in the film, perfectly integrating them with the tumultuous relationship at the story's core.

(Drama 2002, cert 12A) Director Julie Taymor, 123 mins
