Hidden Figures (2017)
Genre: Biography, Drama, History
When I first saw this trailer I was so excited to watch this as I had heard so many good reviews 🙂 . It definitely did not disappoint 😀 . This is a great movie that explores the problems back in the 1960’s America and the amazing efforts these three women did for NASA. I had not heard of these women before this year and was amazed at how smart they were. The movie explored the appalling attitudes they had to deal with tastefully and made you feel great to be a woman (or feel great for them 😛 ) when they succeed. The outfits are great, the set fabulous and the background music (mixture of modern and classic) worked brilliantly for the film 🙂 . There are some epic lines that resonate throughout such as Mary’s when answering a question “I wouldn’t have to. I’d already be one” 🙂 . The court room was also a fabulous scene and loved it when Dorothy was walking down the corridor with all of her colleges (won’t say not more as I don’t want to spoil 😛 ). There are some emotional scenes as well and my favourite (emotional) scene was then Katherine had to justify her trip to the toilet. Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe were all fabulous as the leading women 😀 . I loved the ending and learning about what happened afterwards with these three women. A great movie for all who want to learn about the real people behind the Space Race (NASA) and the struggles they went through to succeed. I definitely recommend this movie for everyone (probably more for women then family 😛 ). Enjoy 😀
I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
