So, just a heads up. This specific review was originally written at a time when I didn’t count on falling behind on reviews, so my solution was to cram them into a single post. However, I hated the way they turned out, so now I’m putting them into their own reviews. In short, this review is going to be crazy short. With that said, let’s carry on.

Henson (THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON  and DATE NIGHT ), Octavia Spencer (ALLEGIANT ), Janelle Monáe (MOONLIGHT ), Kevin Costner (CRIMINAL  and MAN OF STEEL ), Kirsten Dunst (MIDNIGHT SPECIAL ), Jim Parsons (HOME  and THE MUPPETS ), and Mahershala Ali (MOONLIGHT, FREE STATE OF JONES , and KICKS ).

This is my honest opinion of: HIDDEN FIGURES
Based on true events, this story about a trio of black women working in NASA, aiding the most brilliant minds in sending the first American into space, it’s a truly inspiring tale about these important women: Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson. Oh, and Kevin Costner, Jim Parsons, and Kirsten Dunst are great too. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, it’s a wonderful flick. Once again, true events, the story appears to have done justice, but it’s a high recommendation.
My honest rating for HIDDEN FIGURES: a must see
