Emerald Fennell, acclaimed for her Oscar-winning “Promising Young Woman,” tackles another audacious narrative with “Saltburn.” This contemporary reinterpretation of “The Talented Mr. Ripley” navigates the intricacies of human behavior within privileged circles, challenging societal norms. Fennell’s direction, coupled with lush production values, unfolds a wickedly mean and surreal narrative. Barry Keoghan’s unsettling performance as Oliver Quick infiltrating Jacob Elordi’s aristocratic world intensifies the film’s tension. Despite sustaining amusement and provocation, Fennell’s inclination to overexplain during the denouement slightly diminishes the narrative’s impact, departing from the tantalizing ambiguity seen in her earlier work.
