Hidden Figures

“Meet the women you don’t know behind the mission you do. The Oscar-nominated Hidden Figures tells the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson, Empire), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer, The Help) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe, Moonlight) – brilliant African-American women working at NASA in the early 1960s, women who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in American history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world.

This visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire future generations to dream big. Also starring Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst and Mahershala Ali, with music by Pharrell Williams. (Dir. by Theodore Melfi, 2016, USA, in English, 127 mins., Rated PG)”
