The math prodigy premise was the perfect set up to explore the unusual characters and relationships of a first grader (Mckenna Grace, Izzy in Mr. Church,) her de facto guardian (Chris Evans, Captain America in Avengers) and grandma (Lindsay Duncan, Lady Smallwood in Sherlock.) Strong and natural chemistry on screen between Grace and Evans in their respective roles while Duncan played the devil's advocate on the upbringing of a prodigy. Clever dialogue, especially from the first grader and grandma. LOL! (Another good film recently on child prodigy in math is "A Brilliant Young Mind, 2014".)
