Gifted Movie Reviews

  • Beautiful, heartwarming

    Jen's IPAD
    Absolutely enjoyed this movie. The acting was superb and the storyline original and heartwarming.
  • Amazing!

    It’s a really good movie! To bad it doesn’t last longer.
  • Great movie that could have been better

    A great all around movie that seemed to be missing something(s) when it came decision time to continue fighting in court or settle. Sure enough, all but one cut scene would have helped fill that gap. The movie would have been five starts with those scenes left in the movie. Still worth the purchase.
  • Luv it

  • Great Family Movie

    Can Captan America save the girl? I really enjoyed this movie. It touched my heart and made me laugh and cry. The acting was great, the story was great, and it just all worked. The little girl is a future star...a real scene stealer. Recommend buy!!
  • Chris Evans in anything is amazing

    This movie was fantastic. It really tugged at the heart strings with a few moments of comedy. 10/10 stars from me.
  • Unexpectedly Gifted

    Don't be fooled by the description or cynics. The story is simple but has heart to spare. In different hands, with different actors, this film might have been saccharine or trite. It's anything but. It strikes at the heart of what it means to be a parent, what it means to be a family, and most of all, what it really takes to give a child a good life. The synergy and emotion between Chris Evans and McKenna Grace is amazing, as is the mingled love/hate mother/son relationship portrayed between Evans and Lindsay Duncan. The grace notes of warmth and humor provided by the talented Octavia Butler and Jenny Slade set the film off beautifully. Unlike most 'child prodigy' roles, Grace gives us a child prodigy who is, for once, every bit a real child and yet believably brilliant. She's strong-willed, bright, funny, full of energy and life, a vivid little girl who is never cutesy or a brat. She's a real little girl -- who happens to be a genius. It's a tough sell, but Grace does it beautifully. Evans, in turn, plays the kind of father figure we need to see more of -- loving, strong, competent but questioning his own abilities as a parent even as he struggles to do his best. In short: a real dad, single or otherwise, for all that he's an uncle. Moreover, Evans imbues Frank Adler with the same kind of qualities which made his portrayal of Steve Rogers so appealing -- an ordinary, genuinely good guy who's not rich, not connected, but who's willing to give up a successful career and live a simple, blue-collar life in order to do what's right for the people he loves -- his sister and her child. In his own quiet way, Frank's a hero. Most of all, this film forces us, in its subtle way, to question some of the priorities of our society. In a world where parents think nothing of shoving their children into reality TV shows, pushing them into being teen stars or child models, or planning their Ivy League futures from the moment they're conceived, it makes us stop and think. Does money and connections make a better parent? And what makes a 'parent' a real parent, regardless of blood ties and relationships? Buy it, watch it, love it. You won't be sorry.
