I haven’t seen such a good film in a loooong time. With the approach of the inauguration of a demagogue, it was great to escape into a film so enthralling and full of amazing women. And it passes the Bechdel Test hands down.
Played by Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe (yes, the Janelle Monáe, singer and songwriter) Hidden Figures is the true story of the women who did the calculations and research that made it possible to send people into space. Interwoven in the film are the obstacles these amazing women, Katherine Johnson Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, had to overcome during the segregated 1960’s. This movie was immensely refreshing and we need more movies like it. Check it out!
