Eventually, she becomes so problematic that alternate environments, including tutors and elite institutions, are suggested. For the most part, it seems as though “Gifted” simply rehashes family issues like those that shows such as “Touch” have approached before.

Evans brings an uncharacteristically convincing portrayal to the film, a welcome relief from roles in “Captain America” and “Before We Go.” He and the rest of the cast benefit greatly from Tom Flynn’s screenplay.

Jenny Slate, known for her role as Mona Lisa in “Parks and Recreation,” is a strange choice at best.

The appropriateness of that decision is ethically gray at best.
