Hearing the name Chris Evans will probably make you think about his hunk-like roles in Captain America, The Avengers, or Fantastic Four. However, there’s more to this actor other than the action-packed movies he’s been through. Lo, and behold: An upcoming movie that will definitely make any lady swoon with anticipation.
Chris Evans plays another kind of hero in a deeply touching family drama called Gifted, as a doting uncle to child actress McKenna Grace.
Gifted trails the joyous journey of Frank Adler (Evans) and Mary Adler (Grace) living peacefully on their own, but was unfortunately interrupted when Frank’s mother, Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan), discovers that Mary is a prodigy like her mother. Fighting against his mother for the custody of Mary, Frank is determined to give the child a normal upbringing as opposed to the plans of Evelyn.
Supported with an impressive cast, Gifted also includes Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer and Critics’ Choice Best Actress for Comedy Jenny Slate, directed by Marc Webb who also helmed blockbuster favorites such as 500 Days of Summer, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
