It’s not needed to wait for summer vacation to take a trip to Saltburn. On December 22, Emerald Fennell’s highly anticipated follow-up movie, which debuted in theatres in November, will be available on Prime Video.
You will need to create a Prime Video account in order to watch the movie on streaming services. Right now, Amazon is providing a 30-day free trial.
In the movie, Barry Keoghan plays Oliver, a college student who is invited to his eccentric family’s expansive estate for the summer and finds himself sucked into the world of Jacob Elordi, a charming and aristocratic classmate. Both critics and audiences have differing opinions about the movie; some think it’s an inferior recreation of “Talented Mr. Ripley,” while others admire its score, cinematography, and surprising turns. Its messaging about class politics was also criticised by many, since it failed to portray scholarship student Oliver as a vampire con artist while sufficiently mocking the upper classes.
In any case, the film’s twists and turns and some startling scenes starring Koeghan and Elordi caused a stir. In one scene, Keoghan is shown slurping up Elordi’s semen near the tub’s drain after watching her masturbate in a bathtub. At the movie’s debut last month, Elordi said to Variety, “I was like, ‘Thank God, it’s mine,’” Elordi told Variety at the film’s premiere last month. “I was very proud. I was very proud to have Barry Keoghan guzzling it like that.”
“Confronted with a sea of blandly indistinguishable content, Fennell wants to make an impression, embracing the ‘bizart-house’ strategy (pioneered by boundary-pushing A24 movies) of baiting audiences with something they’ve never seen before, and which they’ll be obliged to discuss with others,” Variety film critic Peter DeBruge wrote in his review. “It’s all part of the meme-ification of movies, and Fennell seems fairly savvy about loading the film with salty one-liners and visual zingers.”
