But with three recent films — Wes Anderson’s “Grand Budapest Hotel,” Joel and Ethan Coen’s “Hail, Caesar!” and Luca Guadagnino ‘s “A Bigger Splash,” which opens May 4 — Fiennes may have found a new calling in comedy.

“A Bigger Splash,” which co-stars Tilda Swinton, is a different beast altogether. It’s Fiennes on fire, totally possessed as record producer Harry Hawkes (a character he attempted to infuse with a bit of his brother, Magnus, also a record producer). It’s a much darker shade, however, as Harry is haunted by love lost and, for all the amenities of his lush life, an deep unhappiness.
