From the movie `Frida.’ Screenplay by Clancy Sigal 2002

“I don’t believe in marriage. No, I really don’t! Let me be clear about that. I think at worst it’s a hostile political act. A way for small-minded men to keep women in the house and out of the way, wrapped up in the guise of tradition and conservative, religious nonsense. At best it’s a happy delusion: its two people who truly love each other and have no idea how truly miserable they’re about to make each other. But when two people know all of that and decide, with eyes wide open, to face each other and get married anyway, well, then, I don’t think it’s conservative or delusional. I think it’s radical. And courageous. And very romantic.”

  — Ashley Judd as Tina Modotti (1896-1942), communist photographer, delivering a wedding toast, in the movie `Frida.’ Screenplay by Clancy Sigal 2002
