Gifted (2017) – Emotional, Complex Drama about Family starring Chris Evans

December 6, 2017 7 Comments
Once in a while, I run across a film that’s perfect. Or as close to cinematic perfection as it can be. Of course, I say this with the understanding that this is merely my opinion and not everyone will feel this way about the latest drama starring Chris Evans.

Gifted is not only a gem of a story, it’s also one I was excited to see from the start. (Because CAPTAIN AMERICA aka Chris Evans.) Then the trailer dropped and I simply knew: this was going to be a film I’d love. Next came a wait since it never showed at my closest box office. By the time I finally snagged the BluRay, I was still excited, but perhaps some of the anticipation had worn off. Nonetheless, in the aftermath of watching this one, that patience was rewarded. 

This story is beautiful. The cast is amazing. The production quality easy to enjoy. In short, everyone is fabulous. I had the chance to review it on Silver Petticoat, which is where you can find my official, full-length review. If you’re interested, there is a snippet down below. 

Tell me, have you seen this one? If so, share all your thoughts on Silver Petticoat or down below! I’d love to chat with you about this one.

In glorious HD, the BluRay, perched on store shelves. Continue Reading on Silver Petticoat Review →
