You don’t have t wait until summer vacation to escape to Saltburn. Emerald Fennell’s buzzy sophomore film, which premiered in theaters in November, will arrive on Prime Video on Dec. 22.

In order to stream the film, you’ll have to sign up for a Prime Video account. Amazon is currently offering a 30-day free trial here.

The film stars Barry Keoghan as a college student named Oliver who finds himself drawn into the world of a charming and aristocratic classmate (Jacob Elordi) after he is invited to his eccentric family’s sprawling estate for a summer. The film has polarized viewers and critics alike, with some panning it as a cheap “Talented Mr. Ripley” knockoff, and others embracing it for its cinematography, score and entertaining twists. Many critics also criticized its messaging about class politics, failing to adequately skewer the upper classes while depicting scholarship kid Oliver as a vampiric con artist. 

Either way, the film made a splash for its whirlwind twists and multiple shocking scenes between Koeghan and Elordi. In one scene, Keoghan watches Elordi masturbate in a bathtub and afterward is seen licking up Elordi’s semen around the tub’s drain. “I was like, ‘Thank God, it’s mine,’” Elordi told Variety at the film’s premiere last month. “I was very proud. I was very proud to have Barry Keoghan guzzling it like that.”

“Confronted with a sea of blandly indistinguishable content, Fennell wants to make an impression, embracing the ‘bizart-house’ strategy (pioneered by boundary-pushing A24 movies) of baiting audiences with something they’ve never seen before, and which they’ll be obliged to discuss with others,” Variety film critic Peter DeBruge wrote in his review. “It’s all part of the meme-ification of movies, and Fennell seems fairly savvy about loading the film with salty one-liners and visual zingers.”
