Hidden Figures (PG) Sat 16th December

Based on the true stories of three of these women, known as “human computers”, the film follows them as they rise through the ranks of NASA, specifically tasked with calculating the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big…
