  • Charming And Gripping

    April 19th, 2017

    I knew nothing about this film. Had seen no adds, heard no word of mouth, pretty much nothing. . I only found it only after tapping out the local AMC 24 and driving a few extra miles to see something new.. The premise was intriguing: What to do with a seven year old mathematical prodigy caught between a cozy, loving household occupied by her dotin...

  • Great movie with beautiful cinematography

    May 5th, 2017

    Yes, I give this a 9 out of 10. Not because it's a blockbuster (actually I don't know if it is, or not, and I don't care.) or because of any hype. (I've watched it by pure chance.) . I enjoyed the story, which was well thought through. . I enjoyed the acting -- by everyone. Really. That doesn't happen to me often. . And it is beautifully shot.. Th...

  • A very good watch, especially for the acting and the direction. Loved the chemistry between Chris Evans and Mckenna Grace.

    April 24th, 2017

    Great movie to watch. I loved the chemistry between Chris Evans and Mckenna Grace. Something to watch out. The direction is great and the story very much moving. . Story (8/10): Mary is a gifted child who is way above her biological age. She solves complex math problems and provides expert views on politics. However, her late mother's brother, Fra...

  • how do we choose who chooses?

    April 6th, 2017

    Greetings again from the darkness. The "right" choice isn't always obvious. Things get more complicated when even the "best" choice isn't clear. Place a young child at the heart of that decision tree, and the result may yield emotional turmoil and an abundance of moral high ground and judgment. Such best intentions are at the core of this latest f...

  • Powerful Statement, Outstanding Acting, Stunning Cinematography

    April 9th, 2017

    Gifted is a story with not a lot of surprise elements, but it wins the audience over with its powerful statement, outstanding acting and stunning cinematography. Mainly, Gifted has a very dramatic story line. However, Gifted offers much more then that. Viewers also get a subplot of romance, friendship and strong family values as well as some comed...

  • A Beautiful Family Drama

    July 16th, 2017

    I wanna start by saying this is probably the best movie of 2017 I have seen so far, but I have also only watched about five movies from this year, nevertheless it is amazing. Before watching the movie I really thought it was gonna be pretty bad, but when I finally pulled myself together to watch it I was very happy I did. It managed both to be ver...

  • Emotional roller-coaster but in a really good way!

    May 10th, 2017

    I loved this movie, and I will watch it again. This is my first review ever, and I've been on IMDb for years reading people's reviews to determine if I want to watch a movie or not. Does the movie have some flaws, YES! But a movie that can make me laugh, cry, feel anxious, and a whole lot of emotions I cannot explain is a win win for me. All the c...

  • I will recommend it to everyone

    May 22nd, 2017

    This film tells the story of a seven year old girl who is spectacularly gifted at mathematics. She becomes the centre of a custody lawsuit, when her grandmother shows up out of the blue and demands custody from her uncle.. "Gifted" is brilliant in so many ways. The story itself is very touching and engaging. Mary is super clever, but she still has...

  • Really nice family film

    May 4th, 2017

    Great show, held my attention and warmed my heart! This is not an action, shoot em up show. Just a little cursing. No nudity. Just the presentation of a dilemma of life and the love for a growing, young girl. Excellent acting and filming. The best movie I've seen in a long time. ...
