We are big fans of the Curzon’s series of director Q&As and next month the creator of one of our favourite films of recent years, I Am Love, will be at the Curzon Soho talking about his newest release, A Bigger Splash. Luca Guadagnino has once more teamed up with Tilda Swinton (as well as Dakota Johnson, Mattias Schoenaerts and Ralph Fiennes) in this comic drama shot in beautiful Pantelleria and based on Jacques Deray’s 1969 La Piscine, which starred Romy Schneider and Alain Delon. We haven’t seen the film yet but it’s had rave reviews at festival screenings, with critics wowed by Fiennes’ standout performance. The following month look out for a Q&A with Ben Wheatley, director of the equally buzzy High Rise starring Tom Hiddleston.
