Hidden Figures

Theodore Melfi

US, 2016, 127 min.

The story of women gifted with a talent for numbers, physics and first computers is for many unbelievable: without Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, the first American astronaut would not have gotten to orbit. However, the incredibility of the story has little to do with space and more with prejudices and the segregated American society of the 1960s. It is a playful biographical film about dreams, race to the toilet and infinite equations.
