A tale of family

If you’re a fan of Chris Evans (best known for his role as the hunky Captain America),
or if you absolutely adored Marc Webb’s film 500 Days of Summer, you’ll want to
be sure you don’t miss Gifted. Starring Evans in the main role, it follows the story
of Frank Adler, a single man raising a child prodigy – his spirited young niece Mary
(Mckenna Grace) – in a small coastal town in Florida. Frank plans to raise Mary in a
normal school as he believes this is what his sister would have wanted, but when her
impressive mathematical abilities capture the attention of his mother Evelyn (Lindsay
Duncan), a heated custody battle begins. As with Webb’s other original films, it’s an
emotionally charged and engaging story that’s enhanced by the heartstring-plucking
performances of Evans and Grace. (In cinemas June 9.)
