A truly great movie for any parent. the only part that weighs on my mind is not related to the acting, directing, writing or all around presentation. I found one thing more ironic then troubling. we are watching a movie about a man trying to keep a talented young girl out of the spotlight to give her a normal life. all being portrayed by a talented young girl being put in the spotlight and as we all know as child stars go not quite the normal life. Something to think about... I am in no way advocating that children do not starting movies.... children have given us some of the best performances on screen two date. I just wonder if the writer of the movie or the director ever recognized the irony of it all. but all in all a fantastic movie
The focus is more on the custody battle than the kid's talents which makes the title misleading. They could have made a modern day Little Man Tate but they missed their chance and the movie is just your standard tearjerker family drama. Lindsay Duncan steals the show as the grandmother who wants her granddaughter to show the world her talents.
Gifted is a simple but amazing movie. McKenna Grace's performance was absolutely stunning. We can get easily emotional with the storyline because the acting feels so real. However, I think the movie was a little rushed and there could have been more scenes that explained the story better.
This one is a tear-jerker. A heartfelt masterpiece. Chris Evans reveals his ability to be a well-rounded actor in this film and really shows why he is one of my favorite actors. McKenna Grace is such a cutie with a dash of feistiness in this movie and has a bright career ahead of her. The storyline, although predictable, was great and the life lessons integrated into the script was what made this movie a 4 star drama.
