Bigger Splash Overview

A true oddity that cannot escape its dated origins, A Bigger Splash is a fictional film in which all the actors play themselves. David Hockney is a gay painter unable to work when he breaks up with a boyfriend, leading his friends and his art dealer to worry about him. Eventually, Hockney begins a new painting, using a swimming pool as a canvas, in which he draws a picture of a man floating in the pool while his lover stands outside and stares.
