I knew nothing about this film. Had seen no adds, heard no word ofmouth, pretty much nothing.

I only found it only after tapping out the local AMC 24 and driving afew extra miles to see something new.

The premise was intriguing: What to do with a seven year oldmathematical prodigy caught between a cozy, loving household occupiedby her doting Uncle Frank and a one-eyed cat named Fred, and achallenging but cold academic world ready to pace her on mentaltreadmills for the rest of her life.

McKenna Grace plays little Mary who's character is at the center ofattention whether she likes it or not. Mostly not.

Grace's performance does raise a few eye brows as she very convincinglyplays a precocious and genius little girl plagued with boredom beingsurrounded by the dead-weight of average students she has nothing incommon with.

In fact, Mary's personality is also far developed beyond her peers,exhibiting a sarcastic and jaded sense of humor more on par with abunch of 40-year olds downing a shot or two after a particularly badday at work.

After Mary's abilities are discovered by her first grade teacher, theinevitable battle for command of her future quickly unfolds.

One very powerful supporting role is supplied by Lindsay Duncan whoportrays Evelyn the Grandmother. Evelyn is a poised and properEnglishwoman armed with a titanium intellect few would want tochallenge. As the legal proceedings unfold, Evelyn verbally fire-bombsthe entire court room from the stand without batting an eye in herfight for custody of Mary.

Her arguments and assessments are hopelessly air-tight and seamless,leaving Uncle Frank and his lawyer scrambling.

Frank just wants Mary to be a little girl. Grandma wants to plug herinto The Matrix. Who will win?

'Gifted' is not without it's displays of some original laughs. Myfavorite was a scene in which little Mary discovers her Uncle Frank issleeping with her 1st grade teacher, who one morning comes stumblinginto the kitchen wearing only a towel.

Their reaction to each other is priceless.

As to why this production is flying under the radar with virtually noadvertising or promotion is baffling.

The hour-and-a-half flew by for me and left me with an odd feeling itended too soon. Aside from that, there was almost nothing wrong withthis film, at least not that I could find.

Warm, unique and entertaining, 'Gifted' should stay with you for daysafterwards.

A great family night movie.

FUBAR of the Legal SYSTEMReviewed byAkira LukeVote: 1/10

WTF? there's no abuse, no claim of abuse and a little girl has a paternal grandmother and biological father and an Uncle that has raised her since birth...and their solution was to make her go live in foster care...WTF kind of crap legal BS is that...this crap would not happen anywhere in real life and the movie was good all the way up to the totally unbelievable "compromise;" the lazy writers might as well have had space aliens come down in the middle of the movie and whisk the little girl away like Star Lord--would have been more believable !!!!!!!! This movie was trash after the foster care BS.

how do we choose who chooses?Reviewed byDavid FergusonVote: 7/10

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 from director Marc Webb (his first feature since 500 Days of Summer) and writer Tom Flynn.

Frank (Chris Evans) is raising his 10 year old child prodigy niece Mary (Mckenna Grace) in low-key small town Florida. The circumstances that brought the two of them together aren't initially known, but are explained in a poignant moment later in the film. Frank has been home-schooling Mary and now believes it's time she transitions to public school for the socialization aspect ? "try being a kid for once" he urges. Of course, Mary's teacher Bonnie (Jenny Slate, Obvious Child) immediately realizes Mary is special, and just like that, the wheels of the educational system are in motion to explain to Frank why they know what's best for Mary ? a high-fallutin private school where she can be all she can be.

There is a really nice and enjoyable story here of Uncle Frank dedicated to doing what he thinks is best for bright and charming and spirited young Mary, but it all comes crashing down when the bureaucrats, and ultimately Frank's mother (Lindsay Duncan), get involved. When the adults can't agree on the best route for Mary, a courtroom battle ensues. Ms. Duncan gets a witness scene reminiscent of Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men, and her overall performance stands in effective stark contrast to the warm fuzzies of Mr. Evans.

The supporting cast contributes nicely, though Octavia Spencer's role as kindly neighbor Roberta is more limited than it should be, and the love connection between Evans and Ms. Slate could have easily been omitted - but she is so pleasant on screen, that we don't mind at all. Glenn Plummer and John Finn are the attorneys who go to war, and Fred the one-eyed cat also gets plenty of screen time. But there is little doubt that the movie really belongs to the effervescent Miss Grace. She nails the back and forth between kid and genius, and we never doubt her sincerity.

Child prodigies have been explored through other fine movies such as Little Man Tate, Searching for Bobby Fisher, and Shine, and while this one may run a bit heavier on melodrama, but it's worthy of that group. The best discussions after this movie would revolve around what's best for the child. Should she be deprived of "higher" education in order to live within a more "normal" social environment? Are any of the adults more interested in their own ego than in what's in the child's best interest? Home school vs public school vs private school is always good for some fireworks, and everyone has their own thoughts. So how do we decide who gets to decide? Does a parent get the final say on their child – even if their motivations may be in doubt? Should every kid be pushed to their academic – or artistic – or athletic – limits? The questions are many and the answers are complicated. There is a great line in the film that itself is worthy of conversation: "You got on the bad side of a small-minded person with authority". Yikes. Even Cat Stevens' great song "The Wind" can't soften that.
