GIFTED Dir Marc Webb

Diva (UK) - - Culture | Film & Online Reviews -

What can we say – a highly gifted sev­enyear-old girl is be­ing raised by her un­cle and then her math­e­mat­i­cal ge­nius mother shows up, want­ing to re­gain cus­tody. Un­cle doesn’t want his young niece to go off like his sis­ter to an aca­dem­i­cally chal­leng­ing school and fights for a “nor­mal life” for her. The tropes might be well­worn and the di­rec­tion a lit­tle ob­vi­ous but stay with me; a young girl has to fight her care­tak­ers to achieve her dream and be­come her true, au­then­tic self – what­ever the cliches – this is a les­bian story and I’m a sucker for it. #LEZZGO In cin­e­mas 16 June
