One of the more promising new films from FOX Searchlight features Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson, Matthias Schoenaerts and Tilda Swinton in a love-quadrangle that leads to disaster.
The film is called “A Bigger Splash” and it follows rock legend Marianne Lane (Tilda Swinton) as she is recuperating on the volcanic island of Pantelleria with her partner Paul (Matthias Schoenaerts).
It’s in this picturesque resort that iconoclast record producer and old flame Harry (Ralph Fiennes) unexpectedly arrives with his daughter Penelope (Dakota Johnson) and interrupts their stay.
Harry shows up uninvited, dredging up the past and setting into motion a series of unfortunate events for the characters. The studio teases the film calling it, “a sensuous portrait of desire, jealousy and rock and roll, under the Mediterranean sun.”
A BIGGER SPLASH opens in New York & Los Angeles on Wednesday, May 4th 2016 but will hit theaters nationwide on Friday, May 13th 2016.
