Sometimes, all you want from a movie is to watch a bunch of beautiful people doing their thing in a beautiful location, and Luca Guadagnino‘s “A Bigger Splash” does just that. Our review out of Venice last year called it “an enjoyable slice of sunshine noir,” and now you can feel a bit of that heat, with this new trailer.
Inspired by Jacques Deray‘s 1969 flim “La Piscine,” Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Tilda Swinton star in the story about a rock legend whose idyll is interrupted when her old flame comes back on the scene. Here’s the official synopsis:
In A BIGGER SPLASH, rock legend Marianne Lane (Tilda Swinton) is recuperating on the volcanic island of Pantelleria with her partner Paul (Matthias Schoenaerts) when iconoclast record producer and old flame Harry (Ralph Fiennes) unexpectedly arrives with his daughter Penelope (Dakota Johnson) and interrupts their holiday, bringing with him an A-bomb blast of nostalgia from which there can be no rescue. A BIGGER SPLASH is a sensuous portrait of desire, jealousy and rock and roll, under the Mediterranean sun.
“A Bigger Splash” opens in the U.K. this Friday, and in the U.S. on May 4th. Watch below.
