In Detail

Inspired by a real-life experience of director Josh Margolin's own grandmother, this film puts a clever spin on movies like ‘Mission: Impossible’, shining the spotlight on an elderly grandmother as an unlikely action hero.

With infectious humour, 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, June Squibb (‘About Schmidt’, ‘Nebraska’) 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 (Parker Posey), son-in-law Alan (Clark Gregg), or grandson Danny (Fred Hechinger) might believe. There is no doubting Squibb’s charisma, expertly supported by recently deceased Richard Roundtree (‘Shaft’).
