#66 "Hidden Figures" Movie Review

"Hidden Figures" Movie Review

The Not Old Better Show - Movies For Adults series

I saw Hidden Figures last night here in Washington, DC. I’ll tell you right up front, this is a superb film, excellent really, and judging from the audience reaction, those in the theater with me, we all agreed: lots of applause throughout, lots of audible gasps at parts, and lots of talent in the cast and production.

Most know the story by know, Hidden Figures tells a true story of a group of African-American women who worked at NASA to help launch several of NASA’s preeminent programs like Mercury Atlas, John Glenn’s Friendship 7, and other successful space missions.

At one point during the film, John Glenn says he only wants “numbers from Johnson,” and I thought how heroic Johnson, and the rest of the women are, and how important it is to recognize their contribution.

A wonderful family film, and perfect timing for the holidays, this is a story that needed to be told, and it’s told in a triumphant manner.

Go see Hidden Figures, I think you’ll agree with me and the audience last night, it is fantastic!
