Saltburn: A Wicked Tale of Privilege and Desire

The upcoming psychological thriller film Saltburn, written and directed by Academy Award winner Emerald Fennell, is set to premiere at the 50th Telluride Film Festival on August 31, 2023. The film stars Barry Keoghan, Jacob Elordi, Rosamund Pike, Richard E. Grant, Alison Oliver, Archie Madekwe, and Carey Mulligan.

Set in the mid-2000s, Saltburn follows Oliver Quick (Keoghan), a young college student who is struggling to find his place at Oxford University. He is invited to Saltburn, the eccentric family estate of his aristocratic classmate Felix Catton (Elordi). Oliver is drawn into Felix's world of privilege and decadence, but he soon realizes that there is something dark and dangerous lurking beneath the surface.

The film's trailer, which was released in July 2023, teases a suspenseful and disturbing story of desire, power, and betrayal. The trailer has been met with positive reactions from critics, who have praised Fennell's direction and the performances of the cast.

Saltburn is scheduled to be released in the United States on November 24, 2023. It will be distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in the United States and Warner Bros. Pictures internationally.

In addition to the Telluride Film Festival, Saltburn will also premiere as the opening film of the 67th BFI London Film Festival on October 4, 2023. The film is expected to be a major contender for awards season consideration.

The film's release is highly anticipated, as Fennell is one of the most exciting and acclaimed filmmakers working today. Her previous film, Promising Young Woman, won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and was nominated for five other awards, including Best Picture. Saltburn is sure to be another powerful and provocative film from Fennell.
