Storyline Heading
Frank is a single man raising a child prodigy - his spirited young niece Mary. 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 whose plans for her granddaughter threaten to separate Frank and Mary.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - Even though one of the main characters is a young child, this drama is aimed at adult audiences. Most families will find this to be fairly safe viewing for young kids though the overall subject matter would not be of interest. There is some language and alcohol drinking. Fans of Chris Evans will especially enjoy. Octavia Spencer's part is fairly small.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The trailer is awful but that's often the case with serious movies that can't be reduced to two minutes of clips. Gifted deserves a chance. It's emotionally satisfying and, excepting some contortions during the final act, intellectually rewarding.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good ...even the most high-concept movie is execution-dependent, and the execution here is far better than the premise leads one to expect. If "Gifted” works for you as it did me, it's mostly because of the cast, but also the way the story unpeels.

USA Today Full Review
Good ...heartfelt and uplifting comedy/drama... The film is decidedly emotionally manipulative without being cloying, and often finds real humor in the complicated situation that arises around a genius 7-year-old, played by Mckenna Grace.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average Gifted's notes are crowded out by the screenplay's plot machinations and emotional manipulations.
