Frank Adler (Chris Evans) is a single man raising a child prodigy - his spirited young niece Mary (Mckenna Grace) - in a coastal town in Florida.

Frank's plans for a normal school life for Mary are foiled when the seven-year-old’s mathematical abilities come to the attention of Frank’s formidable mother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) whose plans for her granddaughter threaten to separate Frank and Mary. 

"Chris Evans and “The Amazing Spider-Man” director Marc Webb ditch Marvel-scale spectacle to get back to basics with “Gifted,” the emotionally absorbing story of a grade-school math prodigy caught in a messy custody dispute. But many of the dramatic heroics come from Evans’s young costar, Mckenna Grace, whose appeal and flashes of terrific naturalism help lend the film just the sort of nontraditional-family chemistry it’s after." —Tom Russo, The Boston Globe
