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.

Our parents need more than these periodic sessions, they have served us for the entire life and now it the time for us to give them company and be with them in their old times. I love my parents.

This movie looks very interesting. I want to go to the movie theatre and watch this with my family. I think this movie will inspire a lot of people, especially women who has dreams they think they would never reach. On the other hand, this movie will also enlighten the kids to become respectful and caring for their parents because they are the genuine heroes in this life. I would love to see this film, Hidden Figures very much.

I really enjoyed the movie, although I liked the book best of all, with its non-Hollywood style. Still, what an amazing story it was! Everyone needs to know about it. Excellent film. It touches on the casual racism of the era as well as highlighting the skills and family lives of the main characters. But the film doesn't run from the civil rights activism events that were local to the main characters as well as seeing glimpses of national events. This drama, which puts black women at its center, is so triumphant, highlighting both the brilliance and lives of three women whose stories have been neglected in history books.

I must say that, that's the girl power! This movie truly change the history. Race lines and gender is not important to dream big. Everybody is able to have a dream and make that dream to come true. I didn't know that the figures behind the launch of austronaut John Glenn into orbit was these visionary trio. It was amazing that three women served as the brains of this operations. Great job girls! I will watch this movie with my friends!

    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.
