Hidden Figures (released in February 2017) follows the story of three African-American women – Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson – who worked at NASA in 1962 and were the brains behind sending John Glenn into orbit. Starring Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae.
I found this film incredibly inspirational and empowering. To see people with nothing and be treated so badly to achieve such greatness was amazing. Equally, showed how if you persevere with something, you can achieve incredible things. I think all three actresses portrayed each woman’s story beautifully and were brilliant throughout.
I thought it was such a beautiful story and loved how it was a true story. I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen and was nearly brought to tears at moments.
I would give Hidden Figures 5/5 stars and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
