About the film:

World Premiere, 2024 Sundance Film Festival

The feature directorial debut of Josh Margolin, Thelma (2024) is a poignant action-comedy that gives veteran Academy Award-nominee June Squibb her first leading role and features the final performance of trailblazing actor Richard Roundtree.

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 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.

“It elevates itself through heartfelt characters, a sharp sense of humor that never turns mean, and honest affection for the human condition.”

— Brian Tallerico,
