Just got back from Hidden Figures.

My wife had off, so we went to go see it.  Short version: oh, yeah, go see this movie.  This is a really easy call to make.

Slightly longer version: good, solid movie that did an excellent job at making you understand what it was like to be black, female, and good at math while working at NASA in the early 1960s.  The three leads were all fantastic. Of the three, the one I liked the best was the Dorothy Vaughan character: she was the one who most thought like a player-character. I enjoyed how she finessed things in that movie. I do love a good, morally sound scheme that goes off without a hitch.

Seriously, Hidden Figures is a fun flick with lots of space stuff in it. My wife also felt that it did a good job with making the math cool, although they could have done more to show how WHOMP WHOMP, WHOMP WHOMP, WHOMP WHOMP (I’m not a math guy). So you should have a good time.
