Horizons Presents: Thelma

October 23, 6:00 PM

As with all Bijou Horizons events, students gain admission for FREE with a valid UI student I.D.; $6.50 for general admission!

Come to FilmScene on Tuesday, October 23rd at 6 P.M. to see Joachim Trier's supernatural horror drama - "Thelma". The film follows a college student (played by Elli Haroboe) who begins to have intense seizures while studying at a university in Oslo, Norway. She soon learns that these seizures are a symptom of dangerous and inexplicable supernatural abilities.

"Thelma doesn't play with pig's blood and jump scares; its dreamlike dread is subtler and stranger, and much harder to shake." - Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

"Trier has found a new way to depict and talk about these emotions and experiences that most human beings know and can never really get over. His way is cold, deadpan, extreme, and very Scandinavian, and it's effective." - Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
