Gifted is absolutely amazing. AMAZING. I cried. The girl next to me cried. Everyone’s acting was phenomenal. It was pretty cool to see bits of home, except hearing ‘she’ll be in Tampa, no longer than 30 minutes away’ from Pinellas and I was like mate…. you’ve obviously never driven in Tampa because you can’t go anywhere in half an hour.
Oh. And I came out of it absolutely loving Jenny Slate. And I already loved Octavia Spencer, but holy crap she’s just brilliant and I want to be her when I grow up.
