Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of the African-American women working at NASA who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit.
“Yes, they let some women do some things at NASA, Mr Johnson. And it’s not because we wear skirts; it’s because we wear glasses”
Theirs was a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanised the world and yet their role was unknown to the global audiences tuning in to watch history be made.
Starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali, Aldis Hodge, Glen Powell and Kevin Costner, Hidden Figures will be released February 24th, 2017.
