Hidden Figures (PG)
Set in the early 1960’s when some of NASA’s best “computers” were African-American ladies in smart skirts: the maths behind the mission in the space race. In his pre-launch telephone call John Glenn did not trust the IBM computer but said, “Get the girl to check the numbers – if she says the numbers are good – I’m ready to go”. An inspiring and masterfully shot story of extraordinary minds and times.
