Barry Keoghan and Jacob Elordi star in director Emerald Fennell’s follow-up to Promising Young Woman.
Set in England in 2007, Saltburn follows Oxford university student Oliver Quick (Keoghan) who becomes infatuated with his aristocratic schoolmate Felix Catton (Elordi) and his eccentric family.
Along with a standout supporting cast including Rosamund Pike and Richard E. Grant, the film boasts an eclectic soundtrack mixing early noughties bangers with ‘Zadok The Priest’.
Speaking about the film to NME, Fennell said: “I wanted to tell a gothic love story and a gothic horror story, I suppose. And I wanted to make something about the relationship we have with the things that we desire and how that makes us feel.”
Who composed the soundtrack for Saltburn?
The film’s score was composed by Anthony Willis, who soundtracked Fennell’s previous film Promising Young Woman. His other past credits include M3GAN and the How To Train Your Dragon franchise.

Speaking to NME about choosing the soundtrack, Fennell said: “It was such an interesting time for music, because a lot of the huge bands [back] then did not outlive the time. And so it was [a matter of] looking at those bands who are beloved and still make great music, but maybe their big moment was then, so it really fixes you in that time.”
