Thelma

 

116 minutes · 2017

Drama, Horror, Mystery, Romance
Brian De Palma's Carrie echoes through this Norwegian psychological thriller, which is subtler and more daring than its model. An insecure college freshman in Oslo (Eili Harboe), adjusting to life in the big city without her smothering parents (Henrik Rafaelsen, Ellen Dorrit Petersen), falls for another coed and begins suffering terrible seizures. Her doctors rule out epilepsy in favor of a psychogenic illness, but before long the young woman begins to develop telekinetic powers. Director Joachim Trier (Louder Than Bombs, Oslo, August 31) links supernatural horror to repressed memories, raging hormones, and fundamentalist zealotry, crafting a sexy and unsettling brain-teaser. In Norwegian with subtitles.
