If you have read any of my posts, you will know how much I love movies. There are only a few things I love more than movies. I always get excited when a new movie comes out that I want to see. I am not big in to scary movies or super hero movies so it’s a real treat. Most movies are scary which I refuse to watch. They give me nightmares for weeks. I am not sure why that is. When I saw the preview for Gifted, I knew I wanted to see it. It’s about a little girl who is a child prodigy who goes and lives with her uncle. Noah is considered gifted. He has been in advanced classes since 2nd grade. It looks really interesting. I received some promotional items from Gifted. One of the items is a little stuffed cat with one eye, of course Noah wanted it, he loves cats. I gave it to him and he asked me if he could see the movie. I explained that is rated PG-13, maybe when he’s older.
I love taking a break and going to the movies by myself. It’s fun because it’s me time. It doesn’t bother me that I am by myself, more popcorn for me. Although I have a problem with popcorn, I always eat too much. I always swear next time I won’t do it, but every time. I don’t go to the movies a lot. I can’t even remember the last movie I saw. I am so excited to see Gifted. I love when there’s a new actor in a movie because you can look back and see how much they have grown professionally.
Here’s the synopsis of Gifted:
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.
It comes out in theaters Friday April 7. I am hoping I can see it next weekend while I have some mom time. I will definitely report back, no spoilers of course, cause that’s just mean.
