  • The father's chicanery is the brightest spot in a screenplay that makes the heroine a shrill stooge for everyone else's agenda as the protagonists bicker their way to self-discovery and mutual regard.

  • Boundaries keeps the syrup on medium, and Plummer looks like he's having a ball. If you have a penchant for broken wing syndrome, you may want to let this one into your life.

    July 12, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A movie with no reason to exist apart from setting into motion an otherwise interesting cast, led by Christopher Plummer and Vera Farmiga.

    July 5, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The film... crosses a line - between engaging idiosyncrasy and floundering improbability, amusing and cringeworthy.

    July 5, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Plummer and Farmiga are great together. If only they'd been given material to suit their skills.

    June 29, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • [Plummer] is incapable of mediocrity, but damn if the script doesn't draw him close to the edge.
