Join Indievents and Club David, Wednesday, December 27, for the South Dakota Premiere of THELMA.
THELMA is a supernatural thriller from acclaimed director Joachim Trier. The film has been selected as the Norwegian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 90yh Academy Awards to be held in 2018.
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
Here are some press quotes about the film:
“A striking piece of work from one of our best working filmmakers…A beautifully modulated thriller” – RogerEbert.com
“An ominous, unnerving, and strangely powerful thriller about the most devious of human desires..like an adaptation of ‘Carrie’ as directed by Ingmar Bergman” – IndieWire
