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 and WholeReviewed byJon OchiaiVote: 8/10

In "Gifted" after her taxing first day of main stream school, 7 year- old mathematics prodigy Mary, played by amazing Mckenna Grace, sits on her guardian Uncle Frank, played by gentle Chris Evans, on their beach day near their Florida home. Frank asks Mary about making friends at school. Mary says that she can't make friends with "idiots". The older and wiser Frank tells her, "Your Mother would have wanted you to have compassion." Mary's Mother Diane was the brilliant mathematician, who tragically committed suicide after Mary was born.

Director Marc Webb's "Gifted" is predictable, contrived, and could have been better. I loved that scene with Frank and Mary at the beach which defines the movie. "Gifted" is about compassion, love, and seeing people as whole beyond just their gifts. I liked "Gifted" a lot. Evans and Grace are touching and beautiful together. They compel and shine within the movie's frailties.

Writer Tom Flynn has best intentions; however, some of the plot lines and characters falter. Frank's Mother Evelyn played by dominating Lindsay Duncan is too cold and singular without heart. I don't think she is supposed to be the villain, but she is in the movie. Frank and Mary's kind sage landlord Roberta, played by wonderful Octavia Spencer, is not so much a breathing character, rather a paternal narrative device. This wastes the talents of Spencer. Jenny Slate plays Mary's understanding First Grade Teacher Bonnie, who predictably falls in love with Frank. This creates conflict for Mary and Frank which does not have an entirely authentic feel. However, Evans and Slate's chemistry make this work; because we believe Mary's life is in both of their hearts.

Bonnie discovers Mary's genius in math class. She informs Frank, of which he is already aware. Frank was the former Philosophy Professor at Boston University, before leaving to care for his late sister's daughter. Frank works odd jobs repairing boats. He home schooled Mary as much as possible. While the kids in Mary's class are doing simple arithmetic, she is schooling herself in partial differential equations.

A bully trips Mary's friend on the bus, destroying his school project. Mary responds punching out the bully. Meeting with the school principal, Frank agrees that what she did was wrong. However, he is very proud that she took a stand for someone weaker. The principal reminds Frank that Mary is gifted and would be better suited at the private school for kids like her. Frank says no. He says that Mary's Mother would have wanted her grow up as a kid, and that she would have "wanted her to be happy". He promised Diane. He confesses, "I would rather you dumb her down, if that makes her a good person." "Gifted" is eloquently about choice.

Frank's estranged Mother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) visits from her home in London. She wants charge of Mary to foster her amazing gifts at Harvard. Evelyn is also the former math prodigy, like her daughter Diane and now Mary. The family is gifted. She despises Frank for wasting Mary's gift. Mary's Mom Diane was the brilliant mathematician on the verge of solving the unsolvable Navier-Stokes Expressions. Apparently, Diane's gift was a curse that consumed her, and her driven Mother Evelyn didn't allow young Diane to live life—or fall in love. Frank knows this all too well.

In the tragically disheartening scene, Frank and Evelyn have lunch at the beach. Evelyn tells Frank the reason why Mary committed suicide: "She was weak!" Sadly Evelyn only saw her daughter's gift and not the whole Diane. She intends to sue Frank for custody of Mary. This is the dramatic family conflict of "Gifted".

"Gifted" intimately embodies love and compassion. At the narrative arc, Frank must forsake Mary. As Frank tearfully leaves Mary screams, "Don't go Frank!" Frank profoundly discovers what he has with Mary in the loss. Evans and Grace are moving and authentic in their partnership.

In the wondrous sunset scene on their beach day, Mary literally climbs on Frank. She asks "Is there a God?" Frank answers, "I don't know?" Mary asks, "What about Jesus?" Frank answers, "Love that guy? One way or another we all end up together in the end." In "Gifted" we are all together in the end. In the closing scenes we watch Grace smiling and being a little girl with her Girl Scout friends in the park. The choices matter. Kids should be allowed to be kids—it's only right. In the end, "Gifted" brings us all together.

Great movie to watch. I loved the chemistry between Chris Evans andMckenna Grace. Something to watch out. The direction is great and thestory very much moving.

Story (8/10): Mary is a gifted child who is way above her biologicalage. She solves complex math problems and provides expert views onpolitics. However, her late mother's brother, Frank, is determined togive her a normal life like every other kid. However there is as muchhe can hide from the world, especially her school. Eventually, it turnsinto a courtroom battle of Mary's custody between Frank and his mother,Mary's grandmother, Evelyn, who wants to have her in top schools forgifted in the country and solve some of the all time great problems inmathematics. In the midst of all this, there is a secret kept safearound Mary's mother's death. While the plot isn't so powerful, thescript was very well written which is why the movie was gripping andmanaged to keep audience's attention. I loved the character sketch ofMary and Evelyn in particular - very assertive, except that Mary hadmore subtlety instead of visible aggression.

Acting (9/10): Chris Evans is great in the role of Frank. His brilliantchemistry with Mckenna Grace is perhaps the reason the movie was soenjoyable. Mckenna Grace had definitely tough role playing a giftedchild with all the jargons. However, the raw naughtiness she was ableto project just normal to any child of her age brought a lot of life toher role. Lindsay Duncan was good too - reminded me of Leonard's motherfrom BBT. This was only the second movie of Octavia Spencer I'vewatched and she was good again even in a limited role. She made herpresence felt strongly in the movie even with two other leading ladiesmore closely related to the protagonists. Overall, the movie had somevery good performances to watch out for.

Direction (9/10): Marc Webb elevated an average story into an excellentcinema. His projection of the artistic side (right brain) of anotherwise math genius (left brain) was great and something to take awayfrom the movie. The humor kept the movie light and fun to watch. Iloved the way the relationship of Frank and Mary was projected. Some ofthe scenes, like the hospital one, were beautifully conceptualized andexecuted.

Overall (9/10): Overall, it's a very good watch, especially for theacting and the direction. Even though it's a drama but still not heavy.
