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."

Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine70 - Gifted is exactly what I assumed it would be, no tricks, gimmicks or twists. Not great, not bad, just a sweet family drama with some moments of heart and humor, close to corny, but pulling it off.
