"Just stop talking. The world is not ready for your honesty." StudioCanal UK has unveiled an official trailer for A Bigger Splash, a new film from Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino telling the story of four friends on a holiday on the volcanic island of Pantelleria. Starring Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson, Matthias Schoenaerts and Tilda Swinton, the film is described as a "sensuous portrait of desire, jealousy and rock and roll, under the Mediterranean sun." As much as it looks like a fun vacation, things seem to take a darker turn in the second half, with plenty of interesting insecurities bubbling up to the surface. Amanda already reviewed this film from the London Film Festival last year, saying it falls apart in the last act. Take a look.
Here's the official UK trailer for Luca Guadagnino's A Bigger Splash, direct from StudioCanal's YouTube:
Rock legend Marianne Lane is recuperating on the volcanic island of Pantelleria with her partner Paul when iconoclast record producer and old flame Harry unexpectedly arrives with his daughter Penelope and interrupts their holiday, bringing with him an A-bomb blast of nostalgia from which there can be no rescue. A Bigger Splash is directed by up-and-coming Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino (Melissa P., I Am Love, Bertolucci on Bertolucci), from a screenplay written by David Kajganich, based on a story by Alain Page. The film first premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2015 and also played at the London Film Festival (read Amanda's review), with a limited US release planned for next summer, starting May 13th, 2016. Stay tuned for more release info if you're interested in this one. Watch the first teaser trailer here.
This is looking like the best possible scenario from a Nicolas Sparks' adaptation.

I don't like when scenarios like this end up with murder. And don't understand the reason for it. It's like some kind of impotence incorporated in such a narrative that can't and won't work things out among characters in some dramatic fashion ... Such a pity ...
