About Boundaries

The more Laura (Vera Farmiga) tries to set boundaries in her life, the faster those lines are crossed. Her 12-year-old son Henry (Lewis MacDougall) is in trouble again at school. Her own penchant for adopting stray dogs and cats threatens to overwhelm their Seattle home. And her phone keeps ringing with calls she refuses to pick up—from her estranged father Jack (Christopher Plummer). Maybe Jack will stick around. For Laura, the chance to accept, forgive, and heal will never go away.

About the Guest

SHANA FESTE (Writer, Director)

Shana Feste’s involvement in the arts began when at age 11 she toured with the Young Professionals Actors program. She continued her training at the Santa Monica Playhouse theatre program, studied screenwriting at the University of Texas in Austin, and attended the producing program at American  Film Institute. Feste  has  been  named  one  of  Variety's  “Ten  Directors  to Watch” and one of Filmmaker Magazine's “New Faces in Independent Film.” She was nominated for a Humanitas Prize for her first feature, The Greatest, which she both wrote and directed. The film premiered at Sundance and stars Carey Mulligan, Susan Sarandon, and Pierce Brosnan. Shortly after returning from Sundance she was hired by Hilary Swank to adapt the novel, You're Not You for the big screen. Her second directing/writing effort, Country Strong, was a country music musical starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim McGraw, Leighton Meester and Garrett Hedlund which garnered Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for Best Original Song.
