Gifted ★★★½

GIFTED isn't a movie that is trying to do anything new. It simply wants to tell its story - nothing more, nothing less - and does it with a sweet tenderness that is hard not to enjoy. Perhaps being a parent gives me a bias, but I ate up the cuteness of this film in all its cheesy glory. Mckenna Grace is genuinely great here as well.

A full star deduction, however, for not giving me enough Jenny Slate.
