Nearly a decade has spanned between Joachim Trier‘s three features to date, but the good news is he’s picking up the pace. The Norwegian filmmaker has his next film ready to go, “Thelma,” and it sounds like a fascinating new direction for the director who until now has focused on intimate character dramas.

Starring Eili Harboe, Okay Kaya, Ellen Dorrit Petersen, Henrik Rafaelsen, Vanessa Borgli, Ingrid Giæver, Anders Mossling, Jonas Jörgensen, Steinar Klouman Hallert, Grethe Eltervåg, Marte Magnusdotter Solem, Oskar Pask, Ludvig Algeback, Vidar Fransson, and Ian Twedmark, the supernatural thriller follows a young woman who suddenly discovers she has terrifying, mysterious powers after she falls in love. That’s super intriguing.
