Cinema maestro Luca Guadagnino (Melissa P, I Am Love) re-teams with long-time collaborator Tilda Swinton for a mind-bending tale of relationships, excess and shocking tragedy in A Bigger Splash.
Swinton stars as reclusive rock star Marianne Lane whose life with her boyfriend Paul (Matthias Schoenaerts) is gate crashed by her former friend and manager Harry Hawkes (Ralph Fiennes), his luscious daughter Penelope (Dakota Johnson). What was supposed to be a exotic getaway for the glamourous couple quickly turns into a whirlwind of jealousy, passion and danger.
From the trailer it’s apparent how much room Guadagnino has given Swinton to express herself as Marianne, while Fiennes is at his manic best.
A Bigger Splash received a lot of attention at last year’s Venice Film Festival and is set to be released in the UK on February 12, in Australia and New Zealand on March 10, and in the US on May 13.
