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.

True American hero's with an amazing story! The cast is wonderful for their understated roles. I was taken with the movie from start to finish. The space program is no longer a mystery to me. "Hidden Figures" shows the contribution of 3 African American women that refused to quit at reaching their goals in life. No matter what the obstacle, with dignity and grace they moved ahead. I admire them and the team of African American women they brought into the space program at such a critical time in its development. If I had the power I would give everyone concerned with this movie an Oscar! "Hidden Figures" is simply the best picture I have seen in a fleeting 2017!

Absolutely stunning. My eyes were glued to this movie from the very start. It was such a beautiful movie filled with beautiful moments and breathtaking moments and brilliant actors. Amazing.

This movie is really great! It was wonderful to hear the stories of women involved with the early space program.

I got two things out of this movie, 1. Black women had a lot to do with space travel and 2. People were/and are prejudice without really knowing why. It's just the way things were/are until someone does something about it. People are taught racism, but most people just follow the masses without being about to explain why things are the way they are.

Loved the movie. At times I wished Taraji P. Henson would play her movie character as "Cookie" from Empire especially when facing off against the head engineer, Jim Parsons. Nevertheless, all three of the main actresses were great.

I am not worthy to comment mathematically, but about this movie, I want to say: INFINITESIMALLY FANTASTIC! All the poignant moments, the fun moments, tear jerking funny and happy moments, the elucidation of the brilliance, as well as and the degree of humility and character in general, of these beautiful women of vision. Which vision must have provided such resolve to keep them persisting through such circumstances. Such circumstances for which so many of us should feel unspeakably ashamed (speaking as a white male)... shooting ourselves in the foot and wondering why we've been tripping. And so much I obviously don't know how to say quite properly. Anyway... Feeling appreciation to all who brought "Hidden Figures" about, the time for which I can only imagine how long some people worked and waited so patiently and painstakingly. It is as it says on the dvd jacket- "Uplifting." Thank you, Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn, and Mary Jackson.
I'm with Wildct2003 - who mentions "an expanded version (miniseries?) covering the characters' lives and times." How much more information can/should we bother these incredible women for - or would the book provide all that's needed?

"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.
