I cannot stress strong enough that if you have children you need to run to this movie. Don't walk. Don't crawl. Don't delay. This movie, based on the true story of three mathematicians at NASA, will capture your heart and mind. Addressing discrimination in education, race, and gender, it shows how determination and intelligence can not only be empowering, but can reap success for all of us. It will leave you with chills and one big question, "Why don't the history books teach this?" The truth has never been more hidden.
The incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson - brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served 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. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

    I have an online friend who thinks a good slathering of lipstick can help anything. I'm dubious. Architecture, movies, restaurants, shows, products, you name it I've got an opinion.
