Nominated for six Academy Awards in 2002, Frida is the true story of 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. A product of humble beginnings, Frida earns fame as a talented artist with a unique vision, channelling the pain of a crippling injury into surreal art.
Art & Love: Our Summer Mini Film Festival
Why not combine your visit to the international exhibition, My Friend Picasso: 125 photographs by Edward Quinn with a FREE movie in Castletown. Each Saturday afternoon in July, from the 7th to the 21st, we will be screening a film dedicated to three iconic artists of the twentieth century: Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo and Jackson Pollock. Each of them broke the mould in a different way, each one suffered for their art – and for love. Showing both their artistic struggle and their fascinating personal lives, the films we present to you capture the passion and the conflict out of which great art was born and introduce you to the artists’ companions – Françoise Gilot, Diego Rivera and Lee Kranser – who were acclaimed painters in their own right. Immerse yourself in their stories within the serene surroundings of Ireland’s greatest country home!
