A striking exploration of the tricky connections between parents and children and the importance of makeshift families. And it's so sharply played that it can't help but move us.

A story that transcends certain schematics and hangs between light comedy and tearful drama with dexterity and sensitivity. [Full review in Spanish]

Gifted is too paint-by-numbers to be brilliant but it makes for an enjoyable watch even though it often goes for the low ground to make an emotional impact.

Mckenna Grace is luminous, and Chris Evans (of Captain America fame) portrays a loving and self-sacrificing father figure -- an ordinary superhero.

When all is said and done, Gifted shows enough spirit to avoid all-out mawkishness.

Emotional manipulation gets a bad press. But, hey, sometimes being milked for tears is fun.

Webb has uncovered a real gifted child in McKenna Grace, who is touching, charming and refreshingly unaffected as the reluctant little genius.

June 16, 2017
Gentle it may be, even slightly clichéd in its storytelling, but I enjoyed Gifted, a nicely written treatise on the mixed blessing of being a childhood prodigy.

The clever trick of Gifted is that the genius in question is too young to have any idea of the problems she may face.

A touching drama that transcends its icky premise.

The lead performances are charming enough and there's decent support from Jenny Slate as a teacher who falls for Evans, who's known around town as the "local damaged hot guy".

Evans is likeable and engaging. Happily, the same can be said about the film as a whole.

A warm and fuzzy afternoon is guaranteed.

June 15, 2017
A tug of love comedy-drama about a likeable uncle trying to retain custody of his maths genius niece, this unashamedly treads a clichéd path but somehow endears in spite of its over-familiarity.
