Saltburn has turned the brains of many viewers since its release on Prime Video, and some have difficulty turning the page: the owner of the castle which served as a filming location had to face intrusions from fans.

Emerald Fennel's film was divisive upon its release. Between a public sometimes scandalized by the daring scenes and the phenomenon on social networks, it will have been difficult to miss Saltburn.
