Norwegian helmer Joachim Trier burst on to the scene with his 2006 feature debut Reprise and while he has had a tendency to keep audiences waiting a bit since then - sophomore effort Oslo, August 31st arrived five years later and third effort Louder Than Bombs four years after that - he has firmly established himself as one of the premiere talents on the arthouse circuit. While any new work from Trier is eagerly anticipated, the upcoming Thelma has been moreso than most. Having played firmly to the arthouse set to this point of his career Thelma promises to broaden that audience out a bit while also holding true to Trier's character driven focus.

As the Cannes Film Festival line-up comes into focus, one title we expect to make its debut there is the latest film from Joachim Trier. After crafting emotionally grounded dramas with Reprise, Oslo, August 31st, and Louder Than Bombs, he looks to be taking those skills and embracing some genre fun with Thelma. Ahead of its premiere, the first teaser trailer has now arrived courtesy of Memento Films.
Perhaps the closest thing to a superhero film from the director, the story follows a young woman (Elli Harboe) unaware of the fact that she has been blessed with terrifying powers. Along this journey, she also falls in love with another woman, and judging from the trailer, nightmarish scenarios start to play out. It looks to be a thrilling new direction for the Norwegian director, and we can’t wait to see the results.

Love is a weird enough thing on its own, but things can get especially strange if you find out you have supernatural powers because of said emotion. That’t the plot of Joachim Trier’s upcoming thriller, “Thelma.”

It’s a decidedly different direction for the filmmaker behind such indie favorites as “Reprise” and “Oslo, August 31st,” one who is best known for his beautifully humanistic films.
And yet Trier has always valued emotion and personal experience, putting feeling at the forefront of all his features, so why not twist that into something new for his fourth feature? If our exclusive first look is to be believed, the final product promises to trade in emotion »
