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.
Avoid if you have seizures because the strobes became quite excessive even for someone not affected by them.
