Norway / Denmark / 2017 / 116 minutes / DCP / Color

Like a cerebral, austere Carrie (1976), Thelma focuses on the psyche of a timid young woman who leaves her rural home to study in Oslo. Her sexual awakening, complicated by her family’s oppressive fundamentalism, sparks telekinetic powers she struggles to understand and control. Louder Than Bombs (40th) director Joachim Trier mixes sobriety and melancholy, to create a chilly, opaque world conflating lust, shame and panic deeper than dark supernatural forces. Norway’s entry for the Oscar’s Best Foreign Language Film.
