The film Gifted is amazing! I had the opportunity to recently attend the premiere screening of the movie starring Chris Evans, Mckenna Grace, and Octavia Spencer. Grace who plays a 7-year-old child prodigy named Mary Adler steals the show. The only thing that is missing is her two front teeth! She instantly wins the hearts of the audience and draws you into the story of a uncle’s single parent journey as primary caregiver to his niece. It’s a beautiful journey of loss, obstacles, and triumph.
The character in the film I liked the most was Fred; the one-eyed cat! He provided comfort and personified normality for a little girl who was far from average. Mary was academically gifted in mathematics. Her uncle Frank Adler, played by Chris Evans, promised her deceased mother (his sister) that he’ll make sure her daughter experience childhood and not allow her gift to rob her of it.
To avoid any spoilers, I’m going to stop sharing about this wonderful film and recommend you go see it for yourself! It opens Friday, April 7th in limited theaters and nation wide on Wednesday, April 12th. For more information about Gifted, click here!
