A wealthy woman learns her granddaughter is a math prodigy and tries to wrest custody away from the girl’s working-class uncle (Chris Evans). It can be too sentimental and builds to a routine courtroom battle, but I wasn’t much bothered by any of that because I cared so much about the characters.

Ghost In The Shell (Sci-fi fantasy, PG-13, 1 hr. 46 min., 2917)
