The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - EYE MOVIES -

DARK DAY IN COURT FOR A BRIGHT YOUNG MIND, US, 101 MIN A mod­est light drama, Gifted ben­e­fits strongly from the ca­sual warmth and care­ful in­tel­li­gence Chris Evans finds in the role of Frank, un­cle and sole guardian of a seven-year-old girl show­ing signs of rare math­e­mat­i­cal ge­nius. Point­edly pre­co­cious, yet never once ob­nox­ious, Mary (McKenna Grace) be­comes caught in a tor­rid cus­tody bat­tle sparked by the reap­pear­ance of her long-lost grand­mother (Lind­say Dun­can). Frank then com­pli­cates mat­ters fur­ther by fall­ing in love with Bon­nie (Jenny Slate), Mary’s favourite teacher.
