The internet has been awash with hot takes and impassioned commentary on Oscar-nominated director Emerald Fennell’s sophomore film Saltburn ever since it premiered at the Telluride Film Festival in August. Called the most divisive film this year, audiences and critics don’t know whether it’s a stylish work of art or an unoriginal mess.

A posh thriller, The Independent’s chief film critic Clarisse Loughrey called it a class satire that reaches no conclusions in her review. “But it’s filled to the brim with darkly funny, bile-slicked revulsion. For its director, who hails from the same upper classes she targets, it’s an act of self-excavation,” Loughrey added.

But viewers who haven’t seen the film yet on the big screen will be able to make up their own minds because Saltburn is now available to stream on Amazon Prime Video, just in time for Christmas. The film stars Banshees of Inisherin star Barry Keoghan as Oliver, who’s been invited to spend the summer at fellow Oxford University student Felix’s aristocratic luxury estate.
