"Frida" chronicles the life Frida Kahlo shared unflinchingly and openly with Diego Rivera, as the young couple took the art world by storm. From her complex and enduring relationship with her mentor and husband to her illicit and controversial affair with Leon Trotsky, to her provocative and romantic entanglements with women, Frida Kahlo lived as bold and uncompromising a life as her husband. They were both political, artistic, and sexual revolutionaries, but their art and the way they produced it differed a great deal.
