Every once in awhile, a star from the Marvel Cinematic Universe is able to squeeze in a non-comic book film in-between their superheroic duties. GIFTED, for instance, a new drama starring Captain America himself, Chris Evans. Evans plays Frank Adler, a single man raising a 7-year-old child prodigy named Mary (McKenna Grace). Mary's mathematical abilities are completely off-the-charts, but Frank's determined for her to have a normal upbringing... which would be a lot easier were it not for Frank's scheming mother, Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan), who's got plans of her own for Mary. GIFTED might not be as visually explosive as the majority of Evans' onscreen adventures, but it does look like an emotional, heartfelt little drama.
