Goofs

In the German version the product of 57 and 135 was mistranslated into 7659. This is no excuse for the translators but in German the unit position is spoken before the ten-digit. So seven thousand six hundred fifty nine was translated in that order. See more »

A Fathers Must See!
25 August 2017 | by Robert96757See all my reviews

As a parent you'll find it hard to look at your child without admiring that silly behavior or constant charm. Our children are - after all - a driving purpose & Marc Webbs "Gifted" has no limit to those little reminders of why. Starring Christopher Evans as "Frank Adler", this family oriented drama will have you smiling for hours at the wacky comments and sheer intellect "Mary Adler" (McKenna Grace) portrays in her character is a child prodigy - something I'm sure we all see in our sons & daughters, regardless of where they stand. The plot-line here was surprisingly soft and presented host of lessons that highlighted the importance of a trusting relationship with your child; not to mention dealing with those who might try and stand between it. It's a title every father must see and every mother should feel encouraged by. Where there's love, there's life!
