A young woman’s blossoming sexuality tilts into telekinetic horror in Thelma, a Norwegian art-house Carrie filtered through cool blue tones. Like Brian De Palma’s infamous high school muse, the title character (Eili Harboe) is a pretty, sensitive girl entering a social world — here, the chilly urban bustle of an Oslo university — that her strict religious background has left her utterly unprepared for. Friendless and almost pathologically shy, she keeps to a rigid routine of swimming and studying and cooking sad little meals for one in her anonymous apartment, wandering through her own life like a small, tidy ghost.
