THELMA, is award-winning writer/director Joachim Trier’s (REPRISE, OSLO, AUGUST 31st, LOUDER THAN BOMBS) most daring film to date. Co-written with longtime collaborator Eskil Vogt, Trier follows Thelma, a young woman (Eili Harboe) who leaves her strict family and isolated country home to attend university in Oslo. There, she soon finds friendship and her first love.
Her relationship and newfound independence is quickly complicated by her parents oppressive meddling, their seemingly fundamentalist religious beliefs, and, possibly, Thelma’s unique ability to shape and affect her environment. THELMA had it’s North American premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, and will screen at the New York Film Festival in October. THELMA been selected as the official Norwegian OSCAR® entry for Best Foreign Language Film, and will be released theatrically on November 10th by The Orchard.
