Gifted Now Available on Blu-ray/DVD and Digital HD
My family and I were sent an early copy of Gifted to enjoy on one of our family movie nights. If you follow Be Your Best Mom on Facebook I’m sure you have seen some of my #giftedmath posts! We have been keeping our math sharp this Summer and I have today’s Gifted Math challenge sheet below ready for you to print!
Frank Adler (Chris Evans) is a single man dedicated to raising his spirited young niece, Mary (Mckenna Grace), a child prodigy. But Frank and Mary’s happy life together is threatened when Mary’s mathematical abilities come to the attention of her overbearing grandmother (Lindsay Duncan) – who has other plans for the girl. You’ll love every moment of this “deeply satisfying” (Edward Douglas, Film Journal International) film, also starring Jenny Slate and OSCAR® Winner Octavia Spencer.
First, of all I have to say that I love both Octavia Spencer and Chris Evans so I was excited to see them work together in this film. As, a family we all enjoyed the movie. The story gave us a lot to discuss afterwards. I don’t want to give any spoilers away, but I loved how the movie played out. Step by step more and more information comes to the surface and unfolds about this relationship between uncle and niece. Other family members enter the picture and cause conflict. I was surprised at the ending. I can usually see what’s coming and I didn’t in this one. It is worth the watch. Gifted gave me a lot to think about as a parent and educator. Available now at Amazon.
