Audience Reviews for Thelma

  • Dec 22, 2019
    A stylish, minimalistic, and effective thriller, Thelma isn't groundbreaking - apart from its LGBTQ representation (which is fantastic to see in this genre) - but it engages the viewer and tells a coherent story that sticks the landing in the end.

    Such small emotions. Such large repercussions. Part Carrie, part Moonlight. Thelma explores our deepest desires and the expectations of the world that don't often align. This is all tone and Norwegian director Joachim Trier nails exactly what he was seemingly aiming for.
    Philip P Super Reviewer

    Though it may seem at first like an unoriginal combination of Carrie and Blue Is the Warmest Color, Thelma is a haunting and sometimes pretty tense film centered on a young teenage girl from a strongly religious family struggling with her sexual impulses and desires.
