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 [2008] and DATE NIGHT [2010]), Octavia Spencer (ALLEGIANT [2016]), Janelle Monáe (MOONLIGHT [2016]), Kevin Costner (CRIMINAL [2016] and MAN OF STEEL [2013]), Kirsten Dunst (MIDNIGHT SPECIAL [2016]), Jim Parsons (HOME [2015] and THE MUPPETS [2011]), and Mahershala Ali (MOONLIGHT, FREE STATE OF JONES [2016], and KICKS [2016]).

Co-Writer: Allison Schroeder (MEAN GIRLS 2 [2011])
Composers: Benjamin Wallfisch (LIGHTS OUT [2016]), Pharrell Williams (THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 [2014] and DESPICABLE ME [2010]), and Hans Zimmer (KUNG FU PANDA 3 [2016])
Cinematography by Mandy Walker (JANE GOT A GUN [2016])
Editor: Peter Teschner (CHARLIE’S ANGELS [2000], and the upcoming ODE TO JOY [2019])

This is my honest opinion of: HIDDEN FIGURES

 

(REVIEW)

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
