In the trailer for "Boundaries," Plummer plays Jack, an irreverent rogue of a grandfather who gets kicked out of his nursing home for bad behavior.

As Farmiga told Entertainment Weekly of the actor, "Don't let his prestige and his fancy-schmancy aura fool you. He's a clown, he's a jester, the sort of person you just laugh with most of the time.

"Boundaries" also stars Kristen Schaal, Bobby Cannavale, Peter Fonda, and Christopher Lloyd, and opens in theaters June 22.
