Movie Info & Cast
When “I’ve-lived-so-long-I-can-say-anything-I-want” septuagenarian Jack (Christopher Plummer) is kicked out of his senior home, his estranged daughter, single mom and avid animal rescuer Laura (Vera Farmiga), has to drive him from Texas to California. Lucky for Jack, Laura brings her troubled son Henry along, and he proves the perfect accomplice to help Jack unload $200,000 worth of marijuana he needs to distribute along the way. (Yep. Jack’s an underwhelming father and a dealer.) Parents! *sigh* Amirite? Written and directed by Shana Feste (Country Strong), and also starring Lewis MacDougall, Bobby Cannavale, Kristen Schaal, Dolly Wells, Yahya Abdul-Mateen, Christopher Lloyd, and Peter Fonda.

- Laura: Uh, okay, well, it wouldn't be, like, to ask for help or anything like that. Like, I'm not discounting years of disappointment, years...
- Therapist: And abandonment.
- Laura: Well, I was going to say missed opportunities, but, yeah, sure, yeah, let's just say abandonment.
- Laura: I was thinking we might switch back to seeing each other once a month. Yeah, I'm feeling like I'm in a really good place. You know, like, I've done the work. We've done the work. We've done it.
- Therapist: Have you spoken with your father recently?
- Laura: Well, I... He called, but I did not pick up. He knows the conditions.
- Therapist: So you set a boundary?
- Laura: Yeah.
- Therapist: That must have been very difficult for you.
- Laura: Not really. No. I'm feeling really resolute. Like, *very* resolute. So resolute, in fact... I was thinking, is this the best time to set a boundary? You know, stay with me here, because I'm wondering... maybe it would be best if I did pick up. You know?
- Therapist: I don't.

I Love Norma Bates
This a great movie ...i can't... Waite untill this release !
Boundaries ends the way most road trips do — by running out of gas. But being in the presence of Plummer these days is always time well spent.
So much of Boundaries coasts on hackneyed complications and characters’ self-defeating actions that one wonders why we should believe anything anybody says.
A fantastic cast doing fine work can't make this feel-good hokum believable.
