Such an empowering movie! I just love to see movies that showcases strong women. It is nice to see more wonderful role models for the new generations to look up to an see themselves represented in the media.

Absolutely adore this film. The recognition and attention being shown of these phenomenal black women who were so exceptional in spite of all the segregational world threw at them. We know the names of the men who stepped on the moon but not the women who got them there. Brilliant film. Brilliantly made. Inspiring and wonderful and also shows ways the world should never have treated a person. Will watch again, easily.

The story of a team of female African-American mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the U.S. space program.

Not bad but I did expect more after watching the trailer. Something's more inspiring. I love how they successfully portrait the discriminative reality of that time. How these women feels and belittled. They did lead in their fields and showed others what they can do.

Rewatched this recently and still hits as hard as the first time. Amazingly written, a real insight into the history of segregation and how far we’ve come but still so far to go.

The actors in this movie are fantastic and very good at playing their roles. They enlighten us and gives us a good insight into how it was for a young and very smart woman to grow up during that time. I would recommend this movie at any time!

Amazing historical drama about the pivotal roles that three inspiring African American women played in the earliest days of America’s space program— and the harrowing obstacles they had to overcome.

This was a great movie. Truly inspiring story. I was extremely moved by 3 black women in STEM. I especially loved Taraji P. Henson's performance as Katherine Johnson.

By far one of the best movies I have seen!! Such a tribute to tell the truth and the full story of how black women made substantial change to help get John Glenn and the team get to the moon!!

I love historical movies and this is no exception! Such a great story and acting! Sad we had this much segregation in society just 60 years ago but awesome to learn about these ladies who paved the way! Don’t know if it was my hangover but had to desperately hide all my weeping in my plane seat 😢😂

Very good movie which exemplifies the women’s movement in its early years and women’s struggle to be equal with men in the workplace.
