In 2002, Taymor took on the biopic "Frida," starring Salma Hayek in the lead role as Frida Kahlo and Alfred Molina as Diego Rivera. The critically acclaimed film earned several Oscar nominations, winning for best original score for Taymor's partner, Elliot Goldenthal. The pair often collaborate on stage and film projects.
