Critics Consensus: Boundaries benefits from a stellar performance by the reliably excellent Christopher Plummer, but his work is overwhelmed by the mediocre movie that surrounds it.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Boundaries is an indie road-trip dramedy about a single mom (Vera Farmiga), her teen son (Lewis MacDougall), and her 85-year-old pot-dealing father (Christopher Plummer). Expect to see lots of marijuana on screen, with some scenes of adults smoking it. Language is very strong, with several uses of "f--k," plus "s--t" and other words. A teen boy draws graphic naked pictures of men and a suggestive picture of a woman. There's also some sex-related talk and a scene of former spouses cuddling in bed after suggested, offscreen sex. (She later learns that he's remarried.) A man punches another man, and a teen boy is said to have (accidentally) slapped a woman; she holds an ice pack to her face. Teens try to commit a robbery, but it's comically thwarted. The cast is good, but the story seems mechanical and never sparks to life.
