Hidden Figures shows three African-American women ,working for NASA, facing racial discrimination in their workplace. These women were the brains behind the project that launched an astronaut into orbit. Their achievement helped change the way African-Americans were treated and restored national pride and confidence.
Phaedra’s take- This movie was very touching and the actors showed great emotion. Hidden Figures acknowledged racial divisions and showed ways to overcome them, eventually creating an equal workplace for the African-Americans working at NASA. I would give this movie a five out of five shamrocks.
Jessie’s take- When watching this film, it felt very inspiring and touching. It talks about female empowerment and bringing down racial discrimination which is very inspirational to see in a film. It was wonderful to see women contributing to NASA even with the little that they had! I would give this movie a five out of five shamrocks.
