    Why 'Hidden Figures' is a Movie Everyone Should Watch

    The film tells an incredible story of some truly inspiring people who helped shape American history. Specifically, it recounts the triumphs and struggles of three black women whose work was crucial to NASA in the early 1960s — a time when racial segregation was the law of the land, and gender discrimination was still the norm.

    I just saw the movie. It was good. The type of movie everyone would enjoy.

    I keep harping on us going to see our movies or they will no longer get made

    I have 3 girls and I really enjoy movies that show them they are more than just being pretty. We all saw this the day it came out. I had known about Katherine Johnson but have never heard anything about the other two ladies and how Blacks were an important part of NASA.

    It got by me also, even Katherine Johnson, hence the title: Hidden Figures. I think I saw Mr. Obama give her family an award a couple of weeks ago, but I'm not confident on that.

    Ironically, I have three (3) daughters, a set of twins and my oldest child.

    In the long run, which do you think will do better, Fences or Hidden Figures, or will both do good at the Oscars?

    Neither, Hollywood wants black people to be pro gay and the agenda to have a gay face. Thus, the safe money is on Moonlight
