Ever wondered what Captain America does when he’s not out saving the world with the Avengers? Well, he’s an overall good guy and this movie just proves it even further! Gifted is an upcoming film from 20th Century Fox (distributed by Warner Bros.) where Chris Evans stars along with McKenna Grace, Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, Lindsay Duncan, and Jenny Slate.
Evans plays Frank Adler, uncle and guardian of Mary (McKenna Grace) who both lead normal lives until Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan), Frank’s mom and Mary’s grandmother, decides to take custody of her grandchild. Frank’s sister entrusted him to raise Mary after she died for fear that her daughter might also be subjected to the pressures she’s been through as a prodigy but as soon as Evelyn finds out about Mary’s intellectual state, Frank finds himself in a custody battle to keep Mary under his care.
It’s very refreshing to see Evans take the mask off and see his acting prowess in films like this, something that’s built off of an everyday story where people struggle to find the true meaning of a perfect family. A must watch for the whole family, catch Gifted as it opens May 3 in cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox, to be distributed by Warner Bros.! Check out additional screens below!
