Movie of the Week: Hidden Figures

movie_gold

This was one of the movies I was most excited to see since I first saw its trailer, and I have to say that it didn’t disappoint, not one bit.

By now you should all know what the movie is about, right? 

The incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson – 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 is amazing in its impact. There’s not anything new to the story, because we can see the role of these women from a simple google search, but there is such a strong message and poignancy to this movie. Mainly because I think that nowadays we don’t truly know what it was to be a person of color in the US in the 60’s. And a women in that era, by the way.

I will admit that I cried. I cry each time I see those kinds of social injustices and it makes me cry out of rage.

The interpretations were amazing, all 3 ladies were flawless. The story is great, and so is the cinematography and the direction of this movie. It was one of my favorite movies in a long long time, and I wish that everyone would go to see it.

It absolutely gets 4.5 stars from me!

    I saw the movie trailer and it was love at first sight. I wanted to see it, so a while ago I went to go see it.
    I have to admit, the movie made me angry when they were discriminatory towards the black women, I didn’t like how they behaved as if they women carried a disease. All in all, I loved it. It shows so many things as well as emotions, it was hard to process it all, but I still loved the feel of it.
    It really made you feel like you were in that time era, and that’s really interesting to me.

        Definitely. It’s hard to understand something fully that you were never were adapted to, or even if it wasn’t something that your country has been through. The injustice was horrible, but I’m happy at the end they made you see how things changed, even if they changes weren’t as fast as I wouldn’t liked, haha. I live in a country that was segregated, but I was never born in the time of it all. Growing up in a country that once was segregated I slightly understand better how it was, but it’s still never easy to realize that.
