Hidden Figures movie review

Hidden Figures movie review

This is such a great, family story about the history that many never knew of.  It’s a story of the unsung heroines who helped calculate the orbits for the space program. I know most movie focus on the astronauts and mission control, but this one actually goes behind the scenes before the astronauts can do their job!  These women were brilliant at a time when women and especially black women, weren’t given the proper opportunities to showcase their skills and intelligence.  I honesty didn’t even know that these women even existed…it was never in the history books I read!  It’s such an inspiring story for any young women looking to break into science, math, computer or engineering fields.

The acting was excellent and there was plenty of humor sprinkled around. I mean, check out this cast: Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monae, Octavia Spencer, Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, and Jim Parsons!!

There are some racist/sexist stuff dealing with what they went through, I still say you could watch this with your family of older children.  It’s sickening to know what these women went through; how they had to fight for what they wanted!  It’s definitely a MUST see!!
