Movie Info

LAURA (Vera Farmiga) is a single mother living in Seattle, who has a constant need to put others & animals before her. When her estranged, criminally-minded father JACK (Christopher Plummer) is kicked out of his retirement home, Laura agrees to drive him down the coast to live with her sister JoJo (Kristen Schaal) in LA. Along for the ride is her bright but troubled son HENRY, and an assortment of animal charity cases. Without telling Laura, Jack convinces Henry to help him sell off his copious supply of marijuana at every stop of their journey, resulting in unexpected reunions with old friends and family.

Critic Reviews for Boundaries

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

The road trip movie may be a film festival staple, but Boundaries could be proof that this subgenre has run out of gas.

A fantastic cast doing fine work can't make this feel-good hokum believable, and most viewers who walk away satisfied are those who'd happily watch any new Plummer vehicle, just to celebrate the actor's enduring vitality and charm.

Boundaries breaks no fresh ground and sags into conventional story beats on autopilot, but it's rewarding enough to hang with these characters and roll with their mudslinging.

A touching yet wised-up father-daughter road movie that's the best version of this sort of film you could imagine ...

Christopher Plummer brings a twinkly eyed insouciance to his character, but there's only so many times Jack can make a joke about, say, his adult diapers before it becomes thin and hollow.

Vera Farmiga's stunning performance saves this hokum.
