As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.

Very inspiring and good movie to watch, it reminds me of "Remember the Titans".

Interesting (and funny) movie about the female African-American mathematicians working for NASA during the 1960s race for space. Enjoy the movie and then read the real story about these trailblazing women.

Background on the early space program not know by many. Also, a peek into the early education system for African-Americans geniuses. A important Woman's story I didn't read in my history books while in school. Granted a "feel good" movie, but well done. I would love to see more about the untold stories of the early history of American's Space Program.

A very enjoyable look at the NASA space program in the 1960s and the black women who made a difference.

No surprises here...you already saw it all in the preview. "...so amazing & inspiring"
Feel good movie like this is a bit of a low blow, since if the film is not actually all that great, you are a bad person if you speak up & say so.

Finally got around to watching this. So amazing and inspiring! Now I want to read the book because I'm sure the movie took some liberties with the story.

This one rates a solid five stars. Great story with great acting. We need more movies like this to come out of Hollywood.

"Here at NASA we all pee the same color", a priceless quote!

Many excellent quotes in IMDb and of course from its book at goodreads .... this classic gem appeared in the film but not in the book:

Despite what you may think, I have nothing against y'all.
- I know, I know you probably believe that.
