Chris Evans is one of my favorite actors – and I was lucky enough to interview him once. So when I first saw the trailer for Gifted, I was really excited about it because he stars in it. However, after watching the trailer a second time, I was really into the story. I think this is going to be an incredible movie. I can tell that it is going to bring out the feels though. Both of my daughters are pretty smart (not as smart as the girl in this movie, but they blow me away each and every day). This is a movie that my husband and I are planning to go see in theaters when it comes out April 7th. Our 5 year old has seen the trailer and has asked if she can see it as well. She was really interested in the smart little girl in the movie.
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.
