Synopsis

The inspirational true story of the first female African-American mathematician, Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), and her two colleagues, Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe), whose groundbreaking calculations helped NASA catch up in the "Space Race" with the Soviet Union and allowed John Glenn (Glen Powell) to become the first American astronaut to successfully make a complete orbit of the Earth.

In addition to helping launch John into orbit, the brilliant women crossed gender and race lines, defied expectations and battled stereotypes. In the process, they inspired generations of people to aim high and dream big.

  • 5 stars "I strongly recommend everyone see this movie As a person who lived through this era, I am so grateful to have been raised by parents who taught us that people were people, good, bad or indifferent, regardless of their color, religion or social status. This movie is a testament to these professional women whose hard work and courage make them role models for all women. We still have a way to go with equality in the work force, but with the accomplishments of these women, the path was shortened."
