Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Gifted isn't quite as bright as its pint-sized protagonist, but a charming cast wrings respectably engaging drama out of a fairly predictable premise.

Common Sense Says
Charming but predictable family drama has heavy themes.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Gifted may revolve around a second-grader, but it deals with serious issues, including suicide and parental abandonment, that make it more appropriate for older tweens and up. There's some kissing, and a couple is shown in bed, under a blanket (it's implied that they had sex together). A couple drinks shots while hanging out together, and there's some swearing (including "s--t," said by a child and one use of "f--k") and overtones of violence (a second-grader, defending a classmate who's being bullied, hits another kid and draws blood). But the message that there's more to life than being smart is a worthy one, and courage is a clear theme. Chris Evans, Octavia Spencer, and Jenny Slate co-star.
