Gifted is a film about a single man raising a child prodigy in a heartwarming story from director Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer) that asks, how do you create an ordinary life for an extraordinary girl? I have not seen the movie yet, but I’ve heard it’s good. Thanks to Fox Searchlight, you can see Gifted at a theater near you. I’ve giving ten prize packs consisting of run-of-engagement movie passes and promotional swag. Note: my giveaway is limited to readers with mailing addresses in the state of Oregon and Washington. Gifted opens this Friday in select theaters. It will open nationwide on April 12th.
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. Octavia Spencer plays Roberta, Frank and Mary’s landlady and best friend. Jenny Slate is Mary’s teacher, Bonnie, a young woman whose concern for her student develops into a connection with her uncle as well.
