About this movie

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 haven't seen such a good contemporary film with meaning for a long time. Great acting by everyone. Very joyous with some drama and an uplifting ending. Hooray to the director and everyone involved - a fantastic film that I thoroughly enjoyed.

It was an entertaining story about the relationship between an uncle and his niece. No need to over analyze and pontificate about it, its just a story you can sit back and enjoy.
