So after seeing high score at IMDb for "Gifted" (2017) and some of my favorite critics gave it a maximum score, i was kinda dying to see it for my self. After seeing it i can only say - "Gifted" is an amazingly involving and great movie.
Story here is not a very original but its great. Script was superb - it is moving, involving, funny, realistic and hopeful story. Acting was superb by all involved and reminded me that Chris Evans is a very compelling actor - actually this was his best performance since "Puncture" back in 2011 (because i don't think that working in Marvel movies requires real acting, no offence). Directing by Marc Webb was superb - no dragging moment for entire 1 h 41 min - this is hands down his best movie since his the amazing "500 Days of Summer".
All in all, i can't recommend "Gifted" any higher. It will make you smile, sad and hopeful. Great movie.
