My younger boys are considered gifted by the school system as they both participate in the gifted class at their school. That simply means they get extra help with their learning as their regular school work is too easy for them. I like that my boys are able to get a couple hours a day of challenging work. I much prefer my boys working with the gifted teacher rather than skipping a grade. Skipping a grade would present social challenges for most kids. My boys may be smart but they are still kids who need a normal childhood.
When I think of the girl in the Gifted movie, the word prodigy comes to my mind as her giftedness is way beyond my boy's smartness. My boys may learn new things quickly and as my ten-year-old says "we learn differently from others" but they are far from being as smart as Mary (Mckenna Grace) in the movie Gifted. When her grandmother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan), discovers that Mary has mathematical abilities way beyond her age, she wants to separate her from her uncle Frank Adler (Chris Evans) who has custody of Mary. Frank just wants Mary to have a normal life and has to fight to keep Mary, as he promised his deceased sister that he would do just that. Frank's sister wanted Mary to be raised like a normal child and have friends. Octavia Spencer plays Roberta, Frank and Mary’s landlady and best friend who helps Frank to fight for the right to raise Mary. Jenny Slate is Mary’s teacher, Bonnie, a young woman whose concern for her student develops into a connection with her uncle as well.
