13 Memorable Quotes from Saltburn (2023)

One of the most talked about films that came out in late 2023, Saltburn follows Oxford University student Oliver Quick, played by award-winning Irish actor Barry Keoghan. In the movie, Oliver uses his untamed confidence to trick himself into his aristocratic classmate Felix Catton’s life and his family’s extra event estate, Saltburn.

Saltburn has been rated as one of the best releases of 2023. Critics have described the performances as “acerbic” and the overall film as “a delicious cinematic schadenfreude.” Barry Keoghan’s performance could only be described as phenomenal and rightfully gained him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Motion Picture Drama. 

Among great acting, Saltburn also features terrific cinematography led by Oscar-winning director of photography Linus Sandgren, who also worked on such films as La La Land (2017), No Time to Die (2021), and Babylon (2022).

All in all, the film is creepy and showcases some superb acting by a well-gifted cast. It is currently streaming on Amazon Prime. So, here are thirteen memorable quotes about love from Emerald Fennell’s Saltburn.
