These performances were important in making sense of the movie’s complex emotions and themes. Not to mention the fact that Jacob Elordi was casted in the movie as well, which definitely could be argued is a large reason for the movie’s popularity. “I liked watching the very strange dynamic of Jacob Elordi and Barry Keoghan’s characters throughout the movie,” said freshman Cherry Genovese.

“Saltburn” put itself out there through the way the story was told, which was both suspenseful and different. “It made me uncomfortable in some of the scenes, but the storyline was interesting,” said sophomore Alex Trout. By connecting multiple timelines and perspectives, it kept audiences captivated while exploring the characters. With a balance of pacing and tone, the director made a movie experience that left watchers shocked by the end. “The movie was very suspenseful with its plot and the ending left me very surprised. I liked the uniqueness of the movie in general,” said Genovese. The movie’s ability to have both complex emotions and an interesting plot approached in a different way, while keeping watchers interested shows the director’s skill.
