HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in 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. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
The story also resonates deeply with today’s issues and has relevancy globally on women’s empowerment, on racial issues and how advances in technology have replaced humans. This is a film about the sisterhood of talented women who overcame gender and race barriers in this fun, inspiring and thrilling account of the mission to the moon and beyond but it’s also about love and family.
