An advance screening for the movie "GIFTED" in Toronto is happening this upcoming Thursday, March 16th at 7:00PM at Cineplex Yonge and Dundas. The Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics Society has been offered 15 double passes to attend!
The movie tells the story of Frank Adler (Chris Evans), 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. This inspiring and heart felt film comes out in Toronto theatres on Friday, April 7th.
