Thelma (2017)

Joachim Trier directs Eili Harboe, Kaya Wilkins and Henrik Rafaelsen in this Norwegian supernatural thriller where a closeted Christian girl with psychokinetic powers goes to college and discovers drink, girls and loneliness.

A classy Carrie. Moves at a stately pace, never really tips into full horror. We get an uncertain lesbian romance (Is Thelma mind controlling the wavering affections of her love?) and lots of shots of people crossing the campus square like ants. Well produced, just very slight.
