Hidden Figures (PG)

Dir: Theodore Melfi | USA | 2016 | 127 mins

Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe star in this superb, multi-Oscar nominated drama which tells the incredible untold story of mathematician Katherine G. Johnson, supervisor Dorothy Vaughan and engineer Mary Jackson – all brilliant African-American women who worked at NASA in the ‘60s.

Against the dawning Civil Rights movement, their intelligence enabled the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement at a pivotal moment in US history and the space race. It’s a supremely inspiring and engaging story about a trio of women crossing gender and race lines, with brilliantly charismatic performances from its three central stars.
