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 personally have not been able to see it, our local theater is small and Gifted is not being shown here. But please look at the showings in different states and see if it is airing in your area. The clips I have been able to preview give a plot that will have your heart soft and rooting for Frank, his niece Mary, and of course, Jenny.
Don't miss the giveaway I will be hosting next week with the promo items I received!! One of you will be the winner of some pretty neat items.
