Greetings again from the darkness. The "right" choice isn't alwaysobvious. Things get more complicated when even the "best" choice isn'tclear. Place a young child at the heart of that decision tree, and theresult may yield emotional turmoil and an abundance of moral highground and judgment. Such best intentions are at the core of thislatest from director Marc Webb (his first feature since 500 Days ofSummer) 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 thatbrought the two of them together aren't initially known, but areexplained in a poignant moment later in the film. Frank has beenhome-schooling Mary and now believes it's time she transitions topublic 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 ofthe educational system are in motion to explain to Frank why they knowwhat's best for Mary … a high-fallutin private school where she can beall she can be.

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

The supporting cast contributes nicely, though Octavia Spencer's roleas kindly neighbor Roberta is more limited than it should be, and thelove connection between Evans and Ms. Slate could have easily beenomitted - 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 Fredthe one-eyed cat also gets plenty of screen time. But there is littledoubt that the movie really belongs to the effervescent Miss Grace. Shenails the back and forth between kid and genius, and we never doubt hersincerity.

Child prodigies have been explored through other fine movies such asLittle Man Tate, Searching for Bobby Fisher, and Shine, and while thisone 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 bestfor the child. Should she be deprived of "higher" education in order tolive within a more "normal" social environment? Are any of the adultsmore interested in their own ego than in what's in the child's bestinterest? Home school vs public school vs private school is always goodfor some fireworks, and everyone has their own thoughts. So how do wedecide who gets to decide? Does a parent get the final say on theirchild – even if their motivations may be in doubt? Should every kid bepushed to their academic – or artistic – or athletic – limits? Thequestions are many and the answers are complicated. There is a greatline in the film that itself is worthy of conversation: "You got on thebad side of a small-minded person with authority". Yikes. Even CatStevens' great song "The Wind" can't soften that.

Octavia Spencer has carved out quite a niche for herself in feel-good,family-friendly dramas. At first, she often played caregivers (mostlynurses) during her feature film career, which began in 1996 when sheplayed a nurse in "A Time to Kill". But then she won a Best SupportingActress Oscar for 2011's "The Help" (in which she played a maid). Sinceher Oscar win, the variety in her movie roles has expanded, but sheseems to have gravitated towards a certain kind of cinematic story. Shetook on roles like the peace-loving Johanna in the "Divergent" films, aloving grandmother involved in a child custody battle in "Black orWhite" (2015) and a brilliant and protective NASA supervisor in "HiddenFigures" (2016). Then, in 2017, she played God himself (well, HERself)in "The Shack" – and a loving grandmotherly figure on the fringes of achild custody battle in the terrific family-friendly drama "Gifted"(PG-13, 1:41).

The character to whom the title "Gifted" refers is a precocious7-year-old girl named Mary, played by Mckenna Grace (previously mainlyknown for her TV roles in "The Young and the Restless", "Once Upon aTime" and "Designated Survivor"). Mary never knew her father (whodisappeared from the picture when Mary's mother learned that she waspregnant) and her mother died when Mary was six months old. Mary isbeing raised by her uncle Frank (Chris Evans) in his modest Floridahome, which he pays for by freelancing as a boat repairman. Frank'slandlady is an older woman named Roberta (Spencer) who loves Mary likeshe's her own granddaughter. Good thing. Mary's real grandmother(Frank's mom) is an arrogant and controlling woman who lives inMassachusetts. Which is why Frank lives in Florida.

After home-schooling Mary for a while, Frank decides that it's time forMary to go to school, so he enrolls her in first grade. Frank thinksit's critically important that Mary socialize and make friends withkids her own age. Mary doesn't think she should go to school. Robertaagrees and isn't shy about expressing her concerns to Frank. Robertaknows that Mary is special and is concerned about protecting her from aworld which can't understand her. Mary doesn't want to go to schoolbecause she knows that she can't relate to kids who aren't on herintellectual level. Also because elementary school is so… well,elementary. Mary's concerns about school play out very quickly when shehits a boy in the face with a book for bullying a younger child – andwhen she gets disgusted with her strict, but caring teacher, BonnieStevenson (Jenny Slate) for asking the kids what 3+3 equals, when Marycan do calculus! Ms. Stevenson clearly recognizes Mary's genius inmathematics and the school's principal (Elizabeth Marvel) tells Frankthat the school is unable to academically challenge a child like Maryand offers to help get Mary into a very prestigious private schoolnearby. Frank refuses, insisting that what Mary needs more at thispoint is to learn to socialize with her peers (chronological peers, ifnot intellectual ones) and to just "be a kid". It's at this point thatgrandma Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) shows up on Frank's doorstep. Amathematical genius herself (but surpassed by her late daughter), shetries to convince Frank that his method of raising Mary will rob her ofher potential and deprive the world of major contributions that sheseems destined to make. When Frank refuses to budge, Evelyn drags himinto court for a bitter and very personal custody battle. Roberta andEvelyn become more involved in the lives of Mary and Frank, but it'sunlikely they can do much to help Frank sort through his limitedoptions.

"Gifted" is a wonderful movie, wonderfully executed. Screenwriter TomFlynn and director Marc Webb give us a sweet and meaningful story oflove, family and finding balance in life. It also makes for outstandingdrama, with well-constructed twists and multi-layered plot lines. Graceis adorable – and exceptionally talented, as shown not just by thisrole, but by the impressive list of screen credits she accumulated bythe age of 10! Evans may not be carrying Captain America's shield inthis movie, but he's still pretty heroic as the loving but conflictedfather figure who desperately wants to do right by his niece. Slatereminds us that she's an excellent actress with more range than most ofher fellow SNL alumni. She also has great chemistry with Evans, withwhom she had a year-long relationship after making this movie. Duncanplays her pseudo-villain role with depth and Spencer is both fun andheart-warming to watch. The occasional adult language and allusions tosex take a little away from this film's family-friendliness, but"Gifted" really is a great gift to Movie Fans. "A"

I loved this movie, and I will watch it again. This is my first reviewever, and I've been on IMDb for years reading people's reviews todetermine if I want to watch a movie or not. Does the movie have someflaws, YES! But a movie that can make me laugh, cry, feel anxious, anda whole lot of emotions I cannot explain is a win win for me. All thecharacters are awesome, every single one of them. Wished the movie hadbeen 3 hours. Don't try to analyze this movie,go watch and just FEEL!
