A college student starts to experience extreme seizures while studying at a university in Oslo. She soon learns that the violent episodes are a symptom of inexplicable, and often dangerous, supernatural abilities.
From acclaimed filmmaker Joachim Trier, THELMA is a supernatural thriller about a young woman who discovers that she has inexplicable and terrifying powers. Thelma has just left her religious family to study at a university in Oslo. A sudden bout of violent seizures coincides with her growing affections for fellow student Anja, who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are symptoms of mysterious, often dangerous supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with train secrets from her past and the terrifying implications of her newfound capabilities. Praised particularly for its visual style and homages to classic 80s cinema, as well as Harboe’s electrifying central performance, THELMA is a powerful drama exploring the dangers of repression.

“THELMA exerts a grip of its own, not least when it presses against other genres, leaching details from both science fiction and horror.” – Anothy Lane, New Yorker
“There is a scariness and sexiness to go with its cool understatements and opaque mysteries. It’s a film that appears to allude at various stages to the classic tropes of Hitchcock and De Palma” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
