MVH Hidden Figures (PG)
A biographical drama telling the story of how a team of gifted African American women played a vital role in NASA during the early years of the space programme.
With the Russians having successfully launched a satellite there is mounting pressure to send American astronauts into space. Mathematician Katherine Johnson works alongside aspiring engineer Mary Jackson and her unofficial supervisor Dorothy Vaughan in Langley Research Center, Hampton, Virginia. Skilled in analytic geometry, Katherine is assigned by her white supervisor to assist the Space Task Group and becomes the first African American woman in the team. Her new colleagues are initially dismissive and demeaning, especially the head engineer. Dorothy's request to be officially promoted to supervisor is rejected while Mary identifies a technical flaw which spurs her on to pursue an engineering degree.
#Based on the book of the same name the film is an inspirational account of how three women overcame preconceptions of race and gender.
