Gifted is directed by Marc Webb and stars Chris Evans, Mckenna Grace, Lindsay Duncan, Jenny Slate, and Octavia Spencer. The plot of the movie is Frank, a single man raising his child prodigy niece Mary, is drawn into a custody battle with his mother.  I was really looking forward to seeing this most of the time I end up enjoying these smaller movies more than the big blockbusters. I loved this movie. I thought it was very endearing and well-acted. Chris Evens is really good in this movie also Jenny Slate terrific and Octavia Spencer is wonderful, but the real star here is Mckenna Grace who is a star in the making and I hope she isn't just put in roles similar to this because Hollywood does like to give child stars similar roles.   I was worried a little that this would feel like a Hallmark movie you know what I mean sappy and melodramatic and there were some courtroom scenes that could have made the film fell that way, luckily that does not happen. The most charming thing about the movie is the chemistry between Chris Evans and Mckenna Grace. There are a lot of big fun action movies coming out this summer and I'm sure this will get buried under those movies, but I hope you do check it out it is worth watching.  5 out of 5 stars for Gifted. I hope you enjoyed my review.
