    My stupid two-word review for Joachim Trier's Thelma is "Queer Carrie", but if that intrigues you, all the better. Unlike Carrie, which used horrific psychic powers as a metaphor for puberty and teenage anxieties, Thelma is about a college-age girl. But it's also about an important life transition because she struggles with coming out as gay though she's been raised as a strict Christian. So while there's definitely a sci-fi/horror plot that stands on its own and subversively makes you side with a character responsible for some objectionable actions, it also works very well as a metaphor for owning one's identity, rejecting parental orthodoxy, and the stresses and guilt associated with all of that. The film looks beautiful too, and Eili Harboe in the title role is an engaging, sympathetic presence. From its enigmatic first sequence to its satisfying ending, Thelma keeps surprising, terrifying and enchanting. 2 years 4 months ago
