Apparently the song Rent is featured in the movie?

Yes it is.It is used as a minor part of the story/plot rather than just being played as part of the soundtrack.
I obviously won’t say how as don’t want to spoil it for anyone.
I thought it was a very good film…some strange scenes in it though!!!

Seems like a really weird flick. And Rent is apparently performed in the film.

From the director of Promising Young Woman which is one of the best movies I've seen in the past years. I am very interested in this one.

This movie is strange and brilliant. I highly recommend it. I’d say that the inclusion of Rent is quite a good plot point.
My friend and I laughed a lot in this movie, probably in places where we weren’t supposed to 🤣

Did anyone else notice that the Rent lyrics during the karaoke scene were actually:

You took me to a restaurant off Broadway
To show me who you are


Rather than the official 'to tell me who you are'?

Have I imagined it or are the 'show me who you are lyrics' what Neil originally wrote and then it was changed before it was recorded?

If I haven't totally invented that it would suggest the boys had some input, or whoever used it in the film is a bit of a fan?!"?

Rumor has it “I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing” was also considered to be used for the ending scene for the movie..

I see Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Murder On The Dancefloor is benefiting massively from its exposure via Saltburn.
Woof.

Spotify has Rent 7” as PSB’s 9th most popular song, currently.
Woof.

That film is so desperate to be liked and talked about, lol. Just a bit obvious and sickly, really.

It's an excellent use of Rent in a very well made, yet nasty film. It's driven by a psychopathic envy and a dark nihilism that is deeply sick.
