"Saltburn" and "All of Us Strangers" - two of the most anticipated movie hits are in the program of the 28th Sofia Film Festival

Only in March the fans of Barry Keoghan, Jacob Elordi, Andrew Scott, and Paul Mescal will be able to see their performances on the big screen

Entertainment Weekly described Emerald Fennell's new film "Saltburn" as a "Gothic thriller dusted with poisonous candy-pop glitter." Barry Keoghan and Jacob Elordi star in the lead roles of the challenging, funny, and extravagant story, supported by impeccable acting masters Rosamund Pike, Carey Mulligan and Richard E. Grant. Oliver is a friendless loser in Oxford, but receives an invitation to spend the summer at the spacious Saltburn mansion owned by the wealthy family of his new acquaintance Felix. There, Oliver spends unforgettable days and learns the true depths of depravity that money and privilege can lead to. The film's world premiere was in the Telluride programme and in the final three months of 2023 it became one of the most talked about works, with five BAFTA nominations including British Film of the Year, three acting accolades (for Keoghan, Elordi and Pike) and an Original Music nomination.

Andrew Haigh's "All of Us Strangers" emerged as a bright firework on the cinematic horizon and continues to fascinate fans of surreal, emotion-filled, amazingly energetic and impressive character-driven cinematic stories. According to Total Film, the work is "a testament to the power of love", starring two of Ireland's most sought after actors in recent years, Andrew Scott and Paul Mescal. With over 100 nominations at film festivals in Europe and America, including 6 BAFTA nominations, and with awards from film critics around the world, the film is also receiving ovation from audiences, won by the careful balance between the sensual love story and the intimate family relationships. Adapted from Taichi Yamada's novel "Strangers," the story introduces viewers to a lonely writer lost in memories of his long-dead parents. He begins a passionate love affair with a mysterious neighbour, and his return to his native home reunites him with... his mother and father (Claire Foy and Jamie Bell), who seem to be exactly as they were in his memories of 30 years ago... "We all hurt, we all hope, we all love..."
