"Boundaries"

Sunday June 10th at 7:30PM

For those looking for a warm comedy-drama, this is the film for you! First premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, Boundaries is an indie story that puts actor Christopher Plummer at the center, delivering a snarky but thoroughly appealing performance. The film touches on the deteriorated father-daughter relationship and the journey to finding a foundation to settle it on good terms. A review by a film critic for Variety promises that the film will “deliver you to a place you know you are going.”


ABOUT THE FILM: 88-year-old Christopher Plummer plays Jack Jaconi, a charming yet rebellious old man in Boundaries. The movie shows Jack’s daughter Laura (Vera Farmiga) driving him from Portland to Los Angeles to live with Laura’s sister, due to him being kicked out of his retirement home for selling marijuana. Along for the ride is Laura’s misunderstood son Henry, played by Lewis MacDougall. Laura’s relationship with her father is a very sensitive topic, drawing on his lack of parenting and curmudgeonly attitude towards the world as the basis for their distance. Laura struggles to find peace with her father’s behavior while dealing with other nuisances plaguing her life. Directed by Shana Feste.
