“She’s THE Woman of the century.”

SWINTON as a glam rock god, sometimes slathered in mud, always flawless. Professionally handsome man Matthias Schoenaerts. Ralph Fiennes. Dakota Johnson finally starring in a movie worthy of her charisma. And it’s from the director of the delicious I Am Love.

We’re in for In A Bigger Splash. We don’t even need to know what it’s about.

For those who need a plot synopsis because SWINTON isn’t enough for you:

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 May 13th. Field trip?

Kristy Puchko saw SWINTON in person once and said nothing because she was simply awe-struck.
