Frank Adler (Chris Evans) is a single man raising a child prodigy - his spirited young niece Mary (Mckenna Grace) in a coastal town in Florida. Frank's plans for a normal school life for Mary are foiled when the seven-year-old's mathematical abilities come to the attention of Frank's formidable mother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) whose plans for her granddaughter threaten to separate Frank and Mary. Octavia Spencer plays Roberta, Frank and Mary's landlady and best friend. Jenny Slate is Mary's teacher, Bonnie, a young woman whose concern for her student develops into a connection with her uncle as well.

I caught an Advance Screening of this earlier this month.

While the film is a bit predictable, it hits the right heartstrings and the performances are solid, especially from Mckenna Grace.

I'm a little surprised there hasn't been more chatter on this one. Great performances from everyone and it was nice seeing Evans do something different. It won't blow your socks off, but it's heart is in the right place.
