The 'Gifted' Official Trailer Starring Chris Evans Will Give You All the Feels
A single man raising his child prodigy niece is faced with numerous obstacles.
Breaking free from his Captain America mold, Chris Evans now stars in a moving film about a man named Frank Adler (Evans) who struggles to raise his spirited child prodigy niece Mary (Mckenna Grace). Taking place in a coastal town in Florida, Frank had always planned for Mary to experience a normal school life. However, his plans are derailed when the seven-year-old’s grandmother catches wind of the child’s unique mathematical gifts. As we see in the trailer, she intends to separate Frank and Mary, in efforts to put the young intellectual’s abilities to “good use.”
Also starring in the film is Octavia Spencer (playing Roberta, Frank and Mary’s landlady and best friend) and Jenny Slate (Mary’s teacher Bonnie). You can watch the full trailer above. Gifted is slated to hit theaters April 12, 2017.
