Thelma ★★★

The suspense film about a girl dealing with seizures that may have a supernatural reason behind them and a girl trying to figure them out as well as her sexuality and this methodically paced thriller ramps the tension up with beautifully crafted cinematography and a great performance by Eili Harboe. The narrative tip toes the line between absurdity and science before going full tilt into a well deserved payoff, but the pacing may be too slow for most audiences.
An art house film for sure, but it feels accessible in its delivery.
5.5/10
Avoid if you have seizures because the strobes became quite excessive even for someone not affected by them.
