Norway | 2017 | Joachim Trier
The much-praised new film from the director of Reprise and Louder than Bombs was Norway’s official submission for this year’s Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Thelma tells of a shy young college freshman, raised in a fundamentalist religious family, whose confounding, “impure” feelings for a fellow female student trigger seizures, nightmarish visions, and telekinetic powers. Though reminiscent of Carrie, this movie is “less interested in supernatural horror than in contemplating the effects of an oppressive religious environment on personal development and the challenges of taking control of one's destiny” (Hollywood Reporter).A 2017 New York Film Festival selection; has a 92% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes. Subtitles. DCP. 116 min.
