Sending the first men into space was an unprecedented achievement involving thousands of people from all walks of life. Hidden Figures focuses in on three women of colour who rose up above race and gender to make their mark on the race to space.
A stellar cast, solid director and an untold story should make this a decent hit come January. What with a sadly still prevalent connection to modern day societal issues expect this one to get an added boost in the publicity stakes.
Film looks solid, and I have a feeling it could well be 2017s first big crowd pleaser.
