Well I’m no movie critic expert, but I can rave about the movie “Hidden Figures” without others sharing my sentiment. Everyone has a right to his or her opinion, and I personally found the movie worth its hype. Why? The movie has many dimensions hidden in layers of the storyline.
It’s a movie poignant and quite pertinent in the societal climate of today. There are many parallels transcending generations. If you’re looking for all the truths to reveal itself in the storyline you will miss out on some of the truth not included.
Early in the 60s, three African American women, Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn, and Mary Jackson, former employees of Langley Research Center, played key roles in assisting in the launching of USA’s Friendship 7 satellite rocket on February 20, 1962. The backdrop is the segregation era. These women maintained roles of obscurity until their stories were exposed to the world in theatres.
Despite of, no matter how hidden these powerful figures were- their truth is found in the hidden realities of history.
This is a must see if you not have seen. A wonderful way to show tribute to observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration. The movie carries the theme of liberty and justice for all. The way I see it, “Hidden Figures” is a reminder of how far we have come and how far we must go.
