Boundaries

Boundaries ★★½

A neatly cast but impact-free look at strained family ties, "Boundaries" is a light-toned drama that meanders, sometimes pleasingly, through the interactions of mildly quirky characters. Revolving around Vera Farmiga's Laura, the story finds the single mother on a road trip with her son and father as all involved explore the screenwritten factors that make them unique. The film rolls at a smooth pace from story beat to story beat, and the cast inhabits their characters with ease. There may not be much to the piece as a whole, but it is watchable work.
