THELMA wins at the Houston Film Critics Society Awards
The Norwegian supernatural thriller Thelma has won the Best Foreign Language Film Award at the Houston Film Critics Society Awards.
Thlema is directed by Joachim Trier and tells the story of a religious girl who tries to deny her feelings for a female friend who’s in love with her. This causes her suppressed subconsciously-controlled psychokinetic powers to reemerge as seizures with devastating results.
The Swedish film The Square was also nominated for the prize, as well as the French film BPM, the Japanese film Blade of the Immortal, and the Cambodian First They Killed My Father.
