A Bigger Splash is the sort of movie which normally would come and go without me ever knowing it even existed (aka highly acclaimed, with a plot requiring more than several brain cells to comprehend). However it popped on my radar because I had also watched I Am Love, by the same director, Luca Guadagnino. I Am Love was such a cool, stylish movie that of course I had to wardrobe recap it.
