Humans are capable of such wonderful and atrocious things. Set amidst the space race between the U.S. and Russia, Hidden Figures focuses on three women who battle sexism and racism in an extremely interesting and often very humorous story.
Henson, Spencer, and Monáe are superb, displaying a power and belief that has you willing them forward. Be warned, there are high degrees of sass in this film! Parsons’ familiarity is distracting whilst Costner is suitably understated in his strength of character.
When such an important story and the lesson’s it holds is told this well, it’s well worth your time.
