About the film:

World Premiere, 2023 Telluride Film Festival
Received two Golden Globe nominations, including Best Actor (Barry Keoghan) and Best Supporting Actress (Rosamund Pike).

A beautifully wicked tale of privilege and desire from Academy Award winning filmmaker Emerald Fennell (2020’s Promising Young Woman). Struggling to find his place at Oxford University, student Oliver Quick finds himself drawn into the world of the charming and aristocratic Felix Catton, who invites him to Saltburn, his eccentric family’s sprawling estate, for a summer never to be forgotten.

“a Gothic thriller dusted with poisonous candy-pop glitter”

—Maureen Lee Lenker, Entertainment Weekly
