Official Synopsis: From Luca Guadagnino, director of the Academy Award-nominated I Am Love, and starring Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson, Matthias Schoenaerts and Tilda Swinton, A Bigger Splash is a dazzling, sensuous portrait of desire, jealousy and rock ‘n’ roll under the Mediterranean sun. When a high-profile couple – a rock star and a filmmaker – decide to vacation on a remote Italian island, their rest is disrupted by the sudden visit of an old friend and his sexy, yet mysterious daughter. Suddenly, what was supposed to be an ideal getaway turns into a whirlwind of jealousy, passion and danger for everyone in the group.

A Bigger Splash is released in cinemas 12 February.
