Hidden Figures (PG)

Director Theodore Melfi. Biography/Drama/History


As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as "human computers", we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.

Starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Excellent film very much enjoyed by all who attended, there was a round of applause at the end. Only criticism is the poor diction which is an issue with many American based films.

Great film. Funny, thought provoking on issues of racial segregation in 1960s America and a reminder of the moon race history - which is in living memory for most of the audience.

Excellent
