The Reviews for Gifted (2017) 720p

A strictly "By-the-Numbers" script. Skip it.Reviewed byreasonablynicepersonVote: 7/10

This film might work as a "Movie of the Week" on The Heart-Warming Feel-Good Channel (if there is such a thing) but it is definitely a Not-Ready-for-Theaters-Production, unless you like the kind of movie where you can predict not only the next scene but the next several lines of dialogue. If you also prefer characters who are stereotypes rather than believable human beings then see this movie and buy the DVD and the T-shirt as well.

Screenwriter Tom Flynn might have better luck writing Graphic Novels for twenty- something females if he can find a decent illustrator but as a scenarist he could not really be described as "Gifted."

Gifted is a story with not a lot of surprise elements, but it wins theaudience over with its powerful statement, outstanding acting andstunning cinematography. Mainly, Gifted has a very dramatic story line.However, Gifted offers much more then that. Viewers also get a subplotof romance, friendship and strong family values as well as some comedyhere and there to keep a dramatic movie light.

The plot begins when Mary Adler (Mckenna Grace) starts first grade. Sheisn't like the other kids in her class. Her teacher, Bonnie (JennySlate) soon learns that Mary turns out to be a genius in mathematics.She can easily do equations higher than high school level. Despite herclear giftedness, Mary's uncle, Frank (Chris Evans) refuses to putMaryin a school for gifted children, trying to keep the girl's lifenormal. Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan), Mary's grandmother insists on makingher do mathematics around the clock and training her to be a mathprodigy. What follows is a custody battle between the two for Mary.

My favorite scene really stands out due to remarkable lighting andcamera work. The scene really doesn't contribute to the plot, but thecinematography makes it one of the most excellent in the film. Thescene shows Mary riding on Frank's shoulders. Behind them, a giantsunset completely fills the sky. The lighting from the setting suncomes out stunningly dazzling. Even though it doesn't add to thecomplexity of the story, the scene is very impressive and demonstratesthe closeness of the uncle and his niece.

One of Gifted's weak points waters down to the story. Even though thefilm is unique from other stories about genius kids, by focusing on thefamily values and relationships instead of Mary's exceptionalmathematical skills, it still comes out very predictable and rathersimple. The main conflict never really feels like a major issue butrather, just a side story. Despite those issues, Gifted stillentertains through the acting. All the actors deliver outstandingperformances. Mckenna Grace, despite being only 10-years-old,completely steals the show. Never does the acting feel forced and theactors seem to authentically connect with their characters and have atrue bond on-screen.

There are a few adult references in the film, but nothing too worryabout. I recommend this for ages 8 to 18 and give it 4 out of 5 starsbecause, although the story needs work, the acting and cinematographymake Gifted a very entertaining and memorable film.

Octavia Spencer has carved out quite a niche for herself in feel-good,family-friendly dramas. At first, she often played caregivers (mostlynurses) during her feature film career, which began in 1996 when sheplayed a nurse in "A Time to Kill". But then she won a Best SupportingActress Oscar for 2011's "The Help" (in which she played a maid). Sinceher Oscar win, the variety in her movie roles has expanded, but sheseems to have gravitated towards a certain kind of cinematic story. Shetook on roles like the peace-loving Johanna in the "Divergent" films, aloving grandmother involved in a child custody battle in "Black orWhite" (2015) and a brilliant and protective NASA supervisor in "HiddenFigures" (2016). Then, in 2017, she played God himself (well, HERself)in "The Shack" – and a loving grandmotherly figure on the fringes of achild custody battle in the terrific family-friendly drama "Gifted"(PG-13, 1:41).

The character to whom the title "Gifted" refers is a precocious7-year-old girl named Mary, played by Mckenna Grace (previously mainlyknown for her TV roles in "The Young and the Restless", "Once Upon aTime" and "Designated Survivor"). Mary never knew her father (whodisappeared from the picture when Mary's mother learned that she waspregnant) and her mother died when Mary was six months old. Mary isbeing raised by her uncle Frank (Chris Evans) in his modest Floridahome, which he pays for by freelancing as a boat repairman. Frank'slandlady is an older woman named Roberta (Spencer) who loves Mary likeshe's her own granddaughter. Good thing. Mary's real grandmother(Frank's mom) is an arrogant and controlling woman who lives inMassachusetts. Which is why Frank lives in Florida.

After home-schooling Mary for a while, Frank decides that it's time forMary to go to school, so he enrolls her in first grade. Frank thinksit's critically important that Mary socialize and make friends withkids her own age. Mary doesn't think she should go to school. Robertaagrees and isn't shy about expressing her concerns to Frank. Robertaknows that Mary is special and is concerned about protecting her from aworld which can't understand her. Mary doesn't want to go to schoolbecause she knows that she can't relate to kids who aren't on herintellectual level. Also because elementary school is so… well,elementary. Mary's concerns about school play out very quickly when shehits a boy in the face with a book for bullying a younger child – andwhen she gets disgusted with her strict, but caring teacher, BonnieStevenson (Jenny Slate) for asking the kids what 3+3 equals, when Marycan do calculus! Ms. Stevenson clearly recognizes Mary's genius inmathematics and the school's principal (Elizabeth Marvel) tells Frankthat the school is unable to academically challenge a child like Maryand offers to help get Mary into a very prestigious private schoolnearby. Frank refuses, insisting that what Mary needs more at thispoint is to learn to socialize with her peers (chronological peers, ifnot intellectual ones) and to just "be a kid". It's at this point thatgrandma Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) shows up on Frank's doorstep. Amathematical genius herself (but surpassed by her late daughter), shetries to convince Frank that his method of raising Mary will rob her ofher potential and deprive the world of major contributions that sheseems destined to make. When Frank refuses to budge, Evelyn drags himinto court for a bitter and very personal custody battle. Roberta andEvelyn become more involved in the lives of Mary and Frank, but it'sunlikely they can do much to help Frank sort through his limitedoptions.

"Gifted" is a wonderful movie, wonderfully executed. Screenwriter TomFlynn and director Marc Webb give us a sweet and meaningful story oflove, family and finding balance in life. It also makes for outstandingdrama, with well-constructed twists and multi-layered plot lines. Graceis adorable – and exceptionally talented, as shown not just by thisrole, but by the impressive list of screen credits she accumulated bythe age of 10! Evans may not be carrying Captain America's shield inthis movie, but he's still pretty heroic as the loving but conflictedfather figure who desperately wants to do right by his niece. Slatereminds us that she's an excellent actress with more range than most ofher fellow SNL alumni. She also has great chemistry with Evans, withwhom she had a year-long relationship after making this movie. Duncanplays her pseudo-villain role with depth and Spencer is both fun andheart-warming to watch. The occasional adult language and allusions tosex take a little away from this film's family-friendliness, but"Gifted" really is a great gift to Movie Fans. "A"
