Hidden Figures (PG)

Director Theodore Melfi. Biography/Drama/History


As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as "human computers", we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.

Starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Heart warming & funny, so inspiring. We all commented on how much changed in our lifetimes and so much yet to do!! Great flicks film.

An absolutely brilliant film which never got the credit it deserved through the media. La La Land got all the publicity but in mine and many others opinions it wasn't worthy of it. Our viewers loved it. Never trust the media their opinions appear to be very biased.

An interesting film based on a true story where the mathematics required to make space flight safe was solved by a coloured lady together with the problems she experienced in gaining acceptance and recognition for her considerable ability.
