I’m surprised that a movie that supports the adoption process was released from Hollywood, a place that only seems to support the idea of abortion. Well, don’t get too happy because the film is written and directed by Sean Anders, the man responsible for such smash hits as Daddy’s Home, Daddy’s Home 2, and Horrible Bosses 2
Last year, Amari Sali from Wherever I Look reviewed an Oscar-nominated film Fences, this time he is back to review another academy award nominated film The Shape of Water. The Shape of Water will remind you of the days when fantasy films weren’t made to set up trilogies but simply tell a stand alone, gorgeous story.
Gifted is cliché at times and tends to go the route of hoping an adorable little girl can win your hearts with sass and occasional swearing. While she may not completely win you over, the film empathizes the importance of a strong stable family and for that, it is worthy of a favorable rating.
