Hidden Figures Description

The incredible untold true story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) & Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae)—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. This stunning achievement galvanized the world and inspired generations to dream big.
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.

Hidden Figures Movie Reviews

  • It’s good

    I enjoyed the watch, and I think Americans should never tire of reminding ourselves who we are by retelling such stories (as our capacity to do wrong home and abroad is seemingly bottomless and boundless), but I’d have appreciated a more technically accurate, faithfully dramatic, historical retelling. For example, Katherine Johnson is on record having stated that she was never aware of any racism at NASA, that ‘we were all researchers’ working on tough problems. I’m not sure the possible license taken with the subject matter serves anyone as well as a more faithful retelling would. Yet, such concerns probably pale relative to the overall context, that, yes, black women achieving scientific and leadership positions at NASA circa 1961 and on had to have been a very big deal and this movie was the first I’d heard of this landmark history.

    Proof that Intelect is race free and sex free, and a white dominant world could and STILL is wrong. I am also white but colorblind to race.
  • Truly Inspirational. We loved it!

    Why isn’t Johnson mentioned in John Glenn’s John Glenn: A Memoir or Alan Shepard’s Moon Shot: The Inside Story of America’s Race to the Moon? Why does Charles Murray not mention her in his seminal book on the Apollo program (co-authored with Katherine Murray), Apollo: Race to the Moon? Why is Johnson not mentioned in Tom Wolfe’s epic The Right Stuff,documenting the sensational story of NASA’s first astronaut group, the all-white Mercury 7? Why, especially oddly, is Johnson not mentioned in We Could Not Fail: The First African Americans in the Space Program? Why was Johnson not mentioned in either Jet or Ebony magazine, two black magazines that spent the 1960s and 1970s simultaneously lamenting the lack of blacks at NASA and celebrating any minor achievements of blacks in the space program?
  • Everyone should see this movie.

    Based on a true story of three of NASA's female scientists during segregation, it is a story woven around the lives of three brilliant women who were part of the foundation of the United State's space program. The film depicts many of the challenges that were faced not only by women, but by women of color as they tried to break into scientific careers. It is not history rewritten, it is history that has been undercovered and undervalued. It is time these women received the credit they deserve, they had equal or higher qualifications than some of their peers and often not recognized for their valuable contributions to the space race. It exposes the hard work by all those who supported the calculations and engineering troubleshooting for the nation's first manned orbit of the earth. It is not only well acted but its a fun, visually appealing and compelling story. All can find inspiration in this film, for the youth of America this movie can serve as a springboard for what kind of hard work and dedication it takes to explore new frontiers and advance human achievement. Finally, the release of this movie is timely given John Glenn's recent passing, and speaks to the character of this man who was not only one of America's great heroes but also always a first class gentleman, humble and kind.

    Went with friends on a rainy day to see this flick. It's awesome! It's more than about color. It's about overcoming obstacles and sheer determination and theses ladies did more than a great job portraying these wonderful women. I gave only 4 stars due to some historical inaccuracies. Well worth watching and sharing as it inspires. 👍👍👍👍✈️
