Based on a true story, this tells of how black women ‘computers’ were invisible to their white colleagues. It also tells of the incredible mathematics done pre electronic computers by these same women.
It graphically shows how badly black or coloured people were treated in the USA during the 1960’s, even in a forward-looking organisation like NASA. The level of presumed contempt displayed by nearly all the white people towards them made me feel both uncomfortable and angry.
How the US avoided much more violence at that time seems a miracle.
The acting and story telling give a moving experience to the audience that I felt inspired when I left.
Good luck in the Oscars and 5 out of five from me.
