Hidden Figures

Brilliant Disney piece about the first 3 African- American women to work for NASA - Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) . We witness their challenges as coloured women in the workplace (1960s American South) trying to get the first American into space. Strength of the film the true life 'hidden figures' - in this case our female heroines who have record breaking successes at a time of crippling inequality in the US. Pacing Of the film perfect, set design on point and music soundtrack terrific. One of the unquestionable films of the year.
