Trivia

The Navier-Stokes problem mentioned in the movie is indeed one of the seven Millennium Prize problems in mathematics. Clay Mathematics Institute offered a US $1,000,000 prize to the first person providing a solution for a specific statement of the problem. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, Mary seems to have recently lost her two front teeth. Although the story clearly covers several months (court battles, changes of school...), the poor girl's new teeth never grow in, and at the end of the movie she is just as toothless as at the beginning. See more »

I will recommend it to everyone
22 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a seven year old girl who is spectacularly gifted at mathematics. She becomes the centre of a custody lawsuit, when her grandmother shows up out of the blue and demands custody from her uncle.

"Gifted" is brilliant in so many ways. The story itself is very touching and engaging. Mary is super clever, but she still has a childish side to her. She is very adorable, and I simply wish all the best for her. Her uncle is charming, and does everything he can to take care of Mary. The legal battle with the grandmother is captivating, and it is enhanced by the fact that the two parties are in fact blood relatives with a heartbreaking history. As the heartbreak slowly unfolds, my heart breaks a little more, and I feel closer to the story even more.

I really liked "Gifted". I will recommend it to all my friends.
