This movie is brilliant. You hear about the way African-Americans were treated, but until you really see the prejudice with your own eyes there is no way to understand. This was beautifully portrayed.
An amazing movie I would not have known the facts behind the race to put a man into space and the team of people behind them that made it possible. A must see. Also loved the music track by Farrel
This is an excellent movie. You'd have to be prejudiced in spades not to be batting for the 3 women in their fight for fair treatment.
Amazing movie and story. Nasa with human computers, clever black women serving as the mathematical brains, but with the old racial prejudices to contend with. Thoroughly enjoyed the story and acting.
This was an excellent movie. Well scripted, the prejudice back then was hard to imagine .
At the time of this film, racial prejudice was widespread because white people were ignorant. This movie shows how ignorant.
I was a bit disappointed in this one. Based on a very interesting true story but the film was very broad and superficial. It hammered home the message that segregation was both foolish and wrong but... Read more the characters were never examined in depth as real people. The personal stories about their home lives were saccharine and dull. The actors did their best but this was a missed opportunity to do something interesting.
The story focuses on the contribution made by women of colour to the US space programme. Themes of discrimination against and expectations of women (especially in terms of a dress-code) and segregation... Read more in 1960s USA are handled with humour. The restrained attitude of the women concerned should not be interpreted as resignation, rather a reflection of the enormity of the task of gaining equality and racial freedom?
Slick, polished entertainment that ticks all the boxes, but doesn't provide much depth either. Most of the white characters are bigoted, generic bad guys, and the black characters should be nominated... Read more for sainthood. And the screenplay alters the truth, big time, to suit the film, which surprised me. This is not the way things happened at all. It's interesting to check out the facts on Wiki. It's a very enjoyable entertainment and everyone's excellent in it, but although it's essentially true, a lot of it isn't.
Best movie I've seen in a while! I found it entertaining, informative and so warm-hearted while being heart-breaking! Loved it!
