A Gifted Man…
I discovered today, while searching what to “have” with my breakfast, a TV Show called “A Gifted Man” and honestly, I don’t know how I could have not seen it before…I am only in my third episode, but so far, this show made me cry and smile and in some moments really hold my breath anxiously! I am thrilled I found this show and best part is, the whole first season is already out so I don’t have to wait longest time to get to see another episode…=)
Here’s the story of the show…
A GIFTED MAN is a drama about a brilliant, charismatic surgeon whose life changes forever when his deceased ex-wife begins teaching him the meaning of life from the “hereafter.”
Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson) is an exceptional doctor who lives a materialistic life of luxury thanks to his work-obsessed career and powerful and wealthy patients; however, Michael’s ordered world is rocked when his ex-wife, Anna (Jennifer Ehle), an idealistic free-clinic doctor and the love of his life, mysteriously appears to him. Michael’s off-beat sister, Christina (Julie Benz), a single mom to her teenaged son, Milo (Liam Aiken), is thrilled that Anna’s back in her brother’s life, even as an “illusion,” because Michael was always a better person with her. Curious about Michael’s sudden change in behavior is his efficient assistant, Rita (Margo Martindale). When Anna asks Michael to go to her clinic to help keep it running, he meets Autumn (Afton Williamson), a volunteer carrying on Anna’s work with the underprivileged. Touched by those in need and accepting of Anna’s compassionate “presence,” Michael’s attitude toward serving the rich and poor is turned upside down, and he begins to see that there’s room in his life for everyone.
Academy Award nominee Susannah Grant (“Erin Brockovich”), Academy Award winner Jonathan Demme (“The Silence of the Lambs”), Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly and Neal Baer (“ER”) are executive producers for CBS Television Studios.
I like the combination of actors and I am most of all pleased with the actress playing dead ex wife…from the story she supposed to be like a saint and she actually looks like that! In the show she just radiates warmth and kindness, I don’t know how’s that made, but she does…she also reminds me A LOT younger Meryl Streep, and Meryl also has this kind and loving look, full of grace and elegance…That makes this show so much more like it is invented to be, about goodness in life=)
I really suggest it if you are looking for a new show to keep track on…I am sure it will lure you in making you excited for the next episode!=)
