Visually stunning but morally troubling biography of Mexican surrealist artist Frida Kahlo (Salma Hayek) centers on not only how she painted her painful life experiences but on her enduring love for her husband, famed muralist Diego Rivera (Alfred Molina), whose flagrant promiscuity prompted her to engage in meaningless affairs with both sexes during their 25-year marriage. Directed with theatrical flair by Julie Taymor, the bold sexual content belies a theme of harmful infidelity and the couple's hard-won unconditional love despite considering themselves as artists unconcerned with traditional morality. Heterosexual and homosexual encounters with nudity, sporadic rough language and fleeting violence. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
