Has anyone ever told you you were smart? How about extremely smart? A child prodigy? Gifted is the story of a very special little girl who is being raised by her uncle Frank Adler (Chris Evans). He 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.
Check out the trailer for Gifted in theaters Friday April 7
A totally feel good movie to usher in Spring and renewed feelings of goodness. Coming this Friday to a theater near you. Gifted would make a perfect date night or family night movie.
