Having moved from her rural home to Oslo to study, a young woman falls in love and discovers that she possesses terrifying powers, in this supernatural thriller from Norwegian director Joachim Trier (LOUDER THAN BOMBS, REPRISE).

A decidedly cerebral, austere variation on Brian de Palma's CARRIE, THELMA focuses on a timid young woman who leaves her rural home to study in Oslo. There, she finds love for the first time. But her relationship is complicated by her family's oppressive meddling, their seemingly fundamentalist religious beliefs, and, possibly, her unique ability to shape and affect her environment.

As the strange events pile up, we're left to ask whether Thelma's behaviour results from her parents' devastating disapproval or causes it, and whether we should embrace the existence of dark magical forces as an explanation or dig a little deeper.
