Excellent and entertaining movie with great actors about an exciting but conflicting time in history: In passing the cold war, the race to the moon and a society starting to deal with social divide. At the core, three strong female leads, seizing the day.
Come now, if Wernher von Braun had anything, whatsoever, to do with the space program a movie like this would have surely mentioned him ! Are you sure that is a real person, what kind of name is that, anyway ?
I knew segregation, racism were a huge part of America in the 50s and 60s, just wasn't aware of the degree.
Enjoyed movie thorougly. Revealed much hidden facts?? The brains behind Nasa?? Seems over simplified but its a movie not a documentary. Believe without a doubt that many people behind the scenes never get credit for their contributions or inventions. All the actresses were phenomenal and the people they portrayed were strong intelligent role models. Very inspiring for young women. Saddened me to see how blatant & encompassing racism was in the sixties.
Wernher von Braun ?? if we are to believe this movie, he had nothing to do with space program as he was not even mentioned ! Hollywood has never produced misleading films before, so we must believe them without question.
A well done drama which needed fact checking. Left with ambivalent feeling that while the racism was true of the time, was the rest truthful? Uncertain but entertaining.
Hidden Figures ????? You mean like Wernher von Braun. The actual brains of the space program.
I like the fact that NASA was one of the first to do away with the segregation nonsense in the south and I am not black I am white and I was shocked by the movies. The other thing I liked about it was it brought back wonderful memories of the 50s and the great things we accomplished at that time.
Great movie! Strong women I love it!
A well done, exceptional true-life event of three women math scholars who happen t/b African American. These women not only contributed to the many unknown calculations at that time, but helped catapult NASA into the "Space Race" era which was then the realm of the Soviet Union, but paved the way for all women to enter into the male dominated work force. Women of color, especially, were denied that opportunity during the '60s. Well done and both genders should enlighten themselves beyond provincial stereotyping and see this movie!
