Gifted is one of those rare films with a screenplay that's been polished till it shines. We all know that people don't talk like this in real life but, thankfully, it has an absolutely top-notch cast who delightfully convince us that they do.

The heartwarming moments between Frank and Mary that pulls the ultimate heartstrings.

[A] sweet-natured, button-pushing custody drama...Warm, life-affirming and mounted on a small scale.

Gifted, under more traditional studio care, could have easily remained a sentimental tearjerker. But I would beg audiences to follow director Webb and screenwriter Flynn beneath the surface trappings.

September 11, 2017
What elevates the movie far above the standard courtroom drama is the tender relationship between Frank [Chris Evans] and little Mary [Mckenna Grace].
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 5, 2017
The "gift" of this film is to know how to reach the heart of the viewer, predictable but effective. [Full review in Spanish]

It's good to see [Marc Webb] back working on more intimate material, even though Gifted isn't entirely satisfactory.

Makes no attempt to hide its efforts to tug at your heartstrings, but memorable performances and a refreshing perspective ensure that it's a winner nonetheless.

Gifted is not your run-of-the-mill melodrama. More like an exceptional melodrama. It still plays the violin, if you get what I mean, but the violinist is skilful.

August 30, 2017
It is all too rare that an experienced actor and a relative newcomer remain 'on the same page' so closely and effectively.

August 29, 2017
Gifted's two leads make great travelling companions.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
August 28, 2017
The story may play out by the numbers, but thanks to a superb cast (and astute direction by The Amazing Spiderman's Marc Webb), Gifted is a welcome package: entertaining, engaging, sweetly funny and moving.

Gifted depends on the skill of Mckenna Grace to perform as the little math genius with sass. She and the film succeed admirably.
August 21, 2017
Despite the fact that [Chris] Evans, [Jenny] Slate, [Mckenna] Grace, and the one-eyed cat are all so charming and watchable that you almost forget how much math is on-screen, Gifted is the kind of movie most people will never hear about.

It becomes interesting at times, although it doesn't reach any great depth, but in its simplicity shows few pretensions. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

It will not be a movie ... well, exceptional, but it definitely does its job. It's refreshing to see a simple, relatively small, but intellectually and emotionally stimulating film on our billboard. [Full review in Spanish]

It will not be the best film of the year, bu it makes you laugh by showing empathic situations that make it a pleasant story and keep up with it and maybe even make you cry too if you let it. [Full review in Spanish]

July 12, 2017
It works as a small and successful anomaly in an enclave where many films have failed in the most awful way. [Full review in Spanish]
July 12, 2017
A family drama trapped in the laws that govern the genre and gains when it moves away from the conventional melodrama and opts to show the sweet relationship of its protagonists. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
July 12, 2017
It's more than a film made for television, although its format and the choice of certain framings resemble it, is careful with the approach and has good performances. [Full review in Spanish]
