Gifted ★★★½

What could have been a Hallmark Channel style weepie is lifted out of the ordinary by a deft, funny script, excellent performances and a refusal to descend into schlocky melodramatics. It's not going to change your world but Gifted will leave you with a smile on your face and the knowledge that Hollywood can make good, involving, well acted original films that don't rely on a franchise
