{4.5/5} “He wanted me before I was smart.”

Gifted, released in 2017

Mary is going to school for the first time. She has been home schooled by her uncle Frank but he says he’s taught her everything she knows. He wants her to make some friends. Mary is a mathematical genius and is not sure how she’s going to fit into her class. Meanwhile, Frank’s mother wants Mary to come live with her.

It’s about family, and differing ideas about what’s best for a child.

Young actor Mckenna Grace is delightful as Mary.

Stars Chris Evans, Octavia Spencer, and Jenny Slate. Directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer).
