Thelma ★★★★½

I love films that use genre tropes to tell what are essentially character studies and THELMA is a fantastic example.

Some people say it's similar to CARRIE, but I got a RAW vibe from it, to be honest. Fantastic imagery pervades the film, especially ones set underwater.

I loved the journey and character development of THELMA, basically going from timid creature (You'll understand why I use that word when you see it) to someone that is headstrong and independent. The music cue near the end just clinches it.
