June Squibb and Richard Roundtree Take on Phone Scammers In ‘THELMA’!

Watch the hilariously adorable new trailer to Director Josh Margolin’s ‘THELMA’!

Inspired by a real-life experience of Margolin’s own grandmother, THELMA is a poignant action-comedy that gives veteran Oscar® nominee June Squibb (NEBRASKA) 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, Nicole Byer, and Malcolm McDowell also star.
