This week's recommendation

Hidden Figures

USA

2016, 127mins.

English language

Directed by Theodore Melfi

 

Hidden Figures was the 800th film screened by RFS, on 12th March 2019. The film was one of the four equal top ranked films of Season 56 (equal with The Fencer, Truman and Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years), it got an approval mark of 95% from those attending; from Season 56 we have also already featured the companion three equal top films.

Hidden Figures is a 2016 American biographical drama film directed by Theodore Melfi and written by Melfi and Allison Schroeder. It is loosely based on

the non-fiction book of the same name by Margot Lee Shetterly about black female mathematicians who worked at the

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) during the Space Race.

 

The film stars Taraji P. Henson as Katherine Johnson, a mathematician who calculated flight trajectories for Project Mercury and other missions. The film also features

Octavia Spencer as NASA supervisor and mathematician Dorothy Vaughan and

Janelle Monáe as NASA engineer Mary Jackson, with Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Glen Powell and Mahershala Ali in supporting roles.

Full film notes available in the Twickenham

& Richmond Tribune here.

 

Hidden Figures is available to be streamed on Amazon Prime and disks are available from Amazon, eBay, CeX and other retailers.
