Hidden Figures (2016)

Now available to stream on Amazon, Hidden Figures is not the best movie ever made, but it certainly is worth watching. The story which focuses on the amazing contributions of three African-American women to the NASA space program, particularly the early launches, even if warped a bit by its Hollywood-ization, is compelling. While some of the supporting and sub-supporting and child actors could have been stronger, and the music seemed a bit off, the power of the movie lies in showing the harsh realities of this country's highly segregated and racist bent even into the 1960s.
