Directed by the Oscar-winning director Emerald Fennell, Saltburn is the obsessive thriller the gays have been looking for, and described as “a wicked tale of privilege and desire”.
The movie casts The Batman star Barry Keoghan along with Euphoria fame Jacob Elordi.
Oliver (Barry) is studying at Oxford University in the early Noughties, and struggling to find his tribe. Before long, he becomes obsessed with fellow student, the charming and aristocratic Felix (Jacob).
Felix invites Oliver to meet his eccentric family on their huge estate in Saltburn, the British town which gives the film its name. The pair will then embark on a summer never to be forgotten, which somehow sounds as ominous as it does erotic.
Barry Keoghan was nominated for best supporting actor at this year’s Oscars and bagged a BAFTA for his role as Dominic Kearney in comedy drama The Banshees of Inisherin. While Euphoria villain Jacob Elordi is one of the most sought-after young actors in recent years. He’s currently gearing up to star as Elvis Presley in Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla.
Saltburn has been confirmed to premiere on 24 November in Los Angeles before a wider rollout on 1 December.
