Milan Records today releases Thelma (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) with music by composer Nick Chuba. Available everywhere now, the album features original score music composed by Chuba for the poignantly comedic film written and directed by Josh Margolin. A clever new spin on the action film genre, Thelma stars June Squibb as its unlikely hero, an elderly grandmother on a quest for revenge against phone scammers. For the score, Chuba took inspiration from classic action film soundtracks of the '60s and '70s, melding live instrumentation with electronic production to fashion a 20-track album that captures both the onscreen action of the film as well as its moving underdog story. Thelma is available in theaters now from Magnolia Pictures.

Of the score, composer Nick Chuba explained, "I set out to write an action movie score from our unlikely, nonagenarian hero's perspective, melding electronic production techniques with live instrumentation that recalls the iconic '60s and '70s soundtracks that might be playing in Thelma's head when she revs her scooter or outwits her nephew. In a full-circle moment, we even recorded percussion in the same studio where the great Lalo Schifrin recorded the iconic theme for Mission Impossible, which is what initially inspires Thelma to action. Working in close collaboration with writer-director Josh Margolin and producers ZoŽ Worth and Chris Kaye, we were able to create something that bridges the comedy to the action stakes of the film, while always keeping our protagonist front and center."
