Check out the trailer for this upcoming movie starring Captain America’s Chris Evans.

The story of a struggling single father Frank (Evans)  who is raising and home-schooling his late sister’s young daughter Mary (Mckenna Grace). When Mary starts attending school, her teacher Bonnie (Jenny Slate) discovers that she is a legitimate mathematical genius.  They discover that Mary is capable of making immense mental calculations and handling advanced calculus. Consequently, this “gift”  that Mary enjoys becomes the central issue of a custody battle.

While Frank tries to keep his sister’s wishes and raise Mary as any regular kid, a rising tide of opposition wishes for Mary to be sent away to a think tank where her intellectual abilities can be put to the test; a fate that would deprive her of normal childhood experience. As Frank faces opposition from within his family, an advocate emerges,  Roberta (Octavia Spencer), helping him through the custody ordeal.

Gifted is set to hit theaters April 12, 2017
