Movie Review

‘Gifted’ (2017)

“Your niece may be gifted.”

Gifted (2017)

This emotional and touching film is one that I was surprised to enjoy as much as I did. Watching the trailer made me interested to go see this movie, but I wasn’t so excited to see it that I had to see it the day it was released in theaters. As expected, this was an emotional and loving story that was raw and true. The trailer, in my opinion, does not do the film justice.

The chemistry between the characters, especially between Chris Evans’ character (Frank) and Mckenna Grace’s character (Mary), is phenomenal and really makes this film what it is.  In addition, the overall story-line is more than what is presented in the film’s trailer. However, the main and deeper story-line kind of takes a little while to come through. The film doesn’t necessarily drag on, but it could definitely have gotten to the root of the film a little faster.

All in all, I give this film 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
