Mary's school, depicted in the film, "Howard School" is actually May Howard Elementary School, located at 115 Wilmington Island Road, Savannah, Georgia. The building shown in the movie was originally built in the 1950s to serve the growing suburb Wilmington Island. During filming, a replacement school was under construction just south of the original school used in the film. The original building has since been demolished. See more »

So after seeing high score at IMDb for "Gifted" (2017) and some of my favorite critics gave it a maximum score, i was kinda dying to see it for my self. After seeing it i can only say - "Gifted" is an amazingly involving and great movie.
Story here is not a very original but its great. Script was superb - it is moving, involving, funny, realistic and hopeful story. Acting was superb by all involved and reminded me that Chris Evans is a very compelling actor - actually this was his best performance since "Puncture" back in 2011 (because i don't think that working in Marvel movies requires real acting, no offence). Directing by Marc Webb was superb - no dragging moment for entire 1 h 41 min - this is hands down his best movie since his the amazing "500 Days of Summer".
All in all, i can't recommend "Gifted" any higher. It will make you smile, sad and hopeful. Great movie.
