Three super smart women do the hard part of the math that gets John Glenn into space and safely back again. But because it is the early 60's, they are kept in the background, while an all white team of male engineers gets all the credit. Truly one of the best movies in a long time and an important one for our teens, especially our girls, to all see. It also shows how even 50 years after the civil rights movement began, these true stories are still kept hidden from Americans and that makes you question who in America kept that story silent. It shows how it takes a nation of all people to make huge leaps forward, a timely message, especially in today's political climate. A must see movie.
A great movie that all should see. Acting very good..
I like all of the movie. It was awesome. So much we don't know of all that goes on in our country.
story was great
Best movie I've seen in a long time!
Never knew about these ladies. How far we've come when ignorance isn't involved. It's a must see movie!
Tremendous movue, a must see.
We tend to see a lot of negative news reported in today's paper. This story is about challenging times in the 1960's and it provides a lot of positive messages. Exemplary role models for women and a few good men too. Probably one of the best movies we've watched in a great while. Go see it, you won't be disappointed.
Excellent work!! Best movie I've seen in a long time! Great acting, story and pacing. Over the obstacles and through the fire, these are REAL strong black women who made a significant contribution to OUR country! I hope to see more untold stories like this in the future. Great job to everyone involved in this project.
