Meet the women you don't know, behind the mission you do.

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 Vaughn, 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.

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

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
