Thelma

Dir. Joachim Trier, Norway, France, Denmark, Sweden, 116 mins, 2017

Showing Times:

  • Wed 6 Dec: 7.30pm

Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her small Norwegian town to study in Oslo. One day at the library, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. As the semester goes on she is drawn to a beautiful classmate Anja and soon learns that the violent episodes are a symptom of inexplicable and often dangerous supernatural abilities.

Now, Thelma must confront the tragedy of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers in Trier’s imaginative and beautiful coming of age story.

‘In a film where being trapped under water or ice is a recurrent motif, Thelma dives deep before eventually coming out – and the result is an involving apocalypse of adolescence.’
SIGHT & SOUND

‘This horror-tinged coming-of-age tale is given a fevered, magical realist slant by Norwegian director Joachim Trier’
THE GUARDIAN

‘An ominous, unnerving, and strangely powerful thriller about the darkest of human desires.’
