We’ve seen more than a few movies about single parents trying to give a gifted child a normal life. Some have been brilliant; others have been awful.

Gifted isn’t brilliant, but it’s got heart, and a few tweaks to what might otherwise have been a completely formulaic exercise.

When many months have passed following the murder of Milfred Hayes’ daughter without an arrest, she rents out three billboards on the road into town decrying the situation.

Table 19 is a lighter-than-air confection about a girl who was broken up with via text and went from being her oldest friend’s maid of honor to one of the people at table 19 – the people invited through a sense of obligation but not actually expected to attend.

Eloise McGarry (Anna Kendrick) was to be Francie’s (Rya Meyers) maid of honor until Francie’s brother, Teddy (Wyatt Russell), broke up with her via text. As a result, she is stuck at the ‘random’ table with others who should have RSVP’d NO – but not before sending a gift from the wedding registry.

Searing Trailer: Jackie!

jackie-1

Natalie Portman plays Jackie Kennedy – not the public Jackie, the one we know from television but the one whom we never saw: the one who had to deal privately with the loss of the man she loved.

That the man she loved was President John Fitzgerald Kennedy only heightened her loss.

In the first trailer for Jackie, we see a devastated woman hanging on for dear life – yet never, quite, slipping over the edge.

Natalie Portman is Jackie. Jackie will be in select theaters on December 2nd. The trailer follows the jump.

Based on the Daniel Clowes graphic novel, Wilson tells the story of Wilson, a honest misanthrope with absolutely no filters who discovers he has a teenage daughter and sets out to find her.

Like the graphic novel, the movie – and hence the trailer (which follows the jump) – should be considered NSFW.

Wilson will be in theaters on March 24, 2017.

gifted-frank-and-mary

What’s more important: giving a gifted child a chance to reach her intellectual potential and deny her the chance to be a kid, or allow her to be a kid at the expense of denying her the chance to reach her intellectual potential? Or is there a way to do both?

Those are the questions at the heart of Gift, the new movie by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer). Check out trailer after the jump.

Gifted will be in theaters on April 12, 2017.

TABLE 19
TABLE 19

Eloise got dumped – by text – the night before she was to be maid on honor at the same wedding where he’s best man. Instead of staying home and just sending a gift from the couple’s registry, she’s decided to go anyway. It’s the same wedding – the same celebration, right?
