SYNOPSIS

The feature directorial debut of Josh Margolin, THELMA is a poignant action-comedy that gives veteran Oscar® nominee June Squibb (NEBRASKA and star of Scarlett Johansson’s upcoming directorial debut ELEANOR THE GREAT) her first leading role and features the final performance of trailblazing actor Richard Roundtree (SHAFT). Squibb, who did most of her own stunts in the film, plays Thelma Post, a feisty 93-year-old grandmother who gets conned by a phone scammer pretending to be her grandson (The White Lotus’ Fred Hechinger) and sets out on a treacherous quest across Los Angeles, accompanied by an aging friend (Roundtree) and his motorized scooter, to reclaim what was taken from her. Parker Posey, Clark Gregg, and Malcolm McDowell also star.

Inspired by a real-life experience of Margolin’s own grandmother, THELMA puts a clever spin on movies like MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, shining the spotlight on an elderly grandmother as an unlikely action hero. With infectious humor, Margolin employs the familiar tropes of the action genre in hilarious, age-appropriate ways to tackle aging with agency. In the first leading film role of her 70-year career, Squibb portrays the strong-willed Thelma with grit and determination, demonstrating that she is more than capable of taking care of business – despite what her daughter Gail (Posey), son-in-law Alan (Gregg), or grandson Danny might believe.

REVIEWS

“With Squibb embodying unflinching curiosity, brazen self-reliance, and timeworn vulnerability, Thelma becomes so much more than the sum of its parts. Sure, it’s an action vehicle with training wheels, but it’s also a reminder to treat the most vulnerable among us with the respect they deserve — and to underestimate them at our own peril.”

Lyvie Scott

Inverse

“[THELMA] manages to be so charming and heartfelt that the laughs never feel lazy, cheap, or cruel. Its observations about the disconnect between its elderly protagonist and the society around her are surprisingly relatable.”

Bilge Ebiri

New York Magazine / Vulture

“Margolin’s script has fun with the inherent silliness of a senior citizen action-star, but it never makes Thelma the butt of the joke, and the director’s clear love for his own grandma shines through. Not every gag lands, but Thelma is the rare spoof that’s both laugh-out-loud funny and disarmingly sweet.”

Devan Coggan

Entertainment Weekly

“Writer-director Josh Margolin ingeniously tweaks action- and crime-movie clichés to tell this rather quaint little story. But Thelma is not overly saturated in reference-y irony. It’s sincere and sensitive, gracefully acknowledging the losses and indignities of later life, but also its pleasures.”
