“Gifted” is a new film starring Chris Evans, Mckenna Grace, Lindsey Duncan, Jenny Slate and Octavia Spencer. Directed by Marc Webb of “(500) Days of Summer” fame, The movie centers around a young girl and her incredibly gifted abilities. From the movie’s website:
Frank Adler (Chris Evans) is a single man raising a child prodigy – his spirited young niece Mary (Mckenna Grace) – in a coastal town in Florida. Frank’s plans for a normal school life for Mary are foiled when the seven-year-old’s mathematical abilities come to the attention of Frank’s formidable mother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) whose plans for her granddaughter threaten to separate Frank and Mary. Octavia Spencer plays Roberta, Frank and Mary’s landlady and best friend. Jenny Slate is Mary’s teacher, Bonnie, a young woman whose concern for her student develops into a connection with her uncle as well.

I’ve definitely been drawn in after seeing the trailer. I mean, who wouldn’t want to watch 2 hours of Chris Evans on screen am I right? I kid, I kid. In all seriousness, “Gifted” appears to have taken some cues from real life child prodigy stories and mixed them in with extra family drama for good measure. If you need a break from animated films or superhero fare, “Gifted” might be just the heartwarming story you need to see.
