Hidden Figures

4/5 Stars

Summary: “Three brilliant African-American women at NASA — Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson — serve as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world.”

If you’ve been following the types of movies I watch for a while now, you know how much I love movies based on real people.

I was excited for this one because it’s a story I’ve never heard of before.  I feel like I’ve never even learned about the race to the moon (I guess I must have though?) let alone the women who had a huge part it getting us there.

The movie is interesting and entertaining.  There are moments that will make you laugh and also make you feel angry for the things that actually happened to people back then.  It’ll be enjoyable to a wide variety of people/ages so you should definitely head to the theatre to see this one.
