Emerald Fennel is flipping the script on what’s expected from a drama about British royalty. The ‘Promising Young Woman’ filmmaker’s upcoming film, ‘Saltburn,’ is an acidic look at the decaying youth of aristocratic families. Barry Keoghan stars as Oliver, who follows Felix (Jacob Elordi) to his family estate in ‘Saltburn.’
Emerald Fennel’s cast has the likes of Rosamund Pike and Richard E. Grant playing Felix’s parents. ‘Conversations With Friends’ breakout Alison Oliver also stars with a special appearance from Carey Mulligan. Full of psychological intrigue, ‘Saltburn’ could again find Emerald Fennele in the 2024 Oscar race.
‘Saltburn’ Plot Details
“Lots of people get lost in Saltburn,” warns the ominous butler of the film’s titular estate. Oliver Quick is disillusioned with his place in the world, culminating in his loneliness at Oxford. In search of a purpose, he falls under the spell of Felix Catton, the high-class and aristocratic attendee.
Felix Catton takes Oliver under his wing, inviting him to his family estate of Saltburn. Oliver meets the eccentric family and soon finds himself having the best time of his life. But between the sprawling grounds and glamorous partying, Oliver finds his stay getting complicated by the estate’s hidden secrets and mind games.
