Directed by Emerald Fennell, the genius behind ‘Promising Young Woman,’ this film is ready to unleash its eerie charm on the big screen.

In the charming setting of Oxford, we meet Oliver (Barry Keoghan), your typical student trying to navigate essays, tutorials, and existential crises. Enter Felix (Jacob Elordi), the posh aristocrat with an invite that turns Oliver’s world upside down. Their summer getaway at Felix’s family estate is about to be anything but ordinary, with twists and turns that will keep you guessing.

An abundance of themes are portrayed throughout the film. Fennell’s writing is a smorgasbord of privilege and obsession, and she serves it up like a gourmet meal. The film doesn’t just dabble; it dives headfirst into these themes, and the actors gorgeously chew their way through. Jacob Elordi as Felix is the icing on the cake, Barry Keoghan’s Oliver provides the perfect base, and Elsbeth’s (Rosamund Pike) wit cuts right through the cake.
