'Gifted' Review

I don't need to be told that Chris Evans is a good actor. Just because he's Captain America, that doesn't he mean he doesn't have depth, which was obvious to anyone who saw Sunshine or Snowpiercer. (And for that matter, he's a pretty solid Captain America, too.) So, it's not really news to report that Evans is the best thing in Gifted, a schmaltzy custody drama that I found increasingly irritating as it became more and more formulaic. Seriously, this movie infuriated me, which I get into in my Screen International review.
