Senior Screen – Hidden Figures (PG)
Directed by Theodore Melfi, USA, 2016, 127 mins
With Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe & Kevin Costner
Theodore Melfi’s biopic tells the uplifting tale of how three gifted mathematicians helped make history and America to put its first man into space in 1961. That the mathematicians were also female and black in a country where racial segregation still had a sour normalcy only adds piquancy to the story. Deftly avoiding clichéd melodrama, hidden Figures celebrates amazing achievements in a society in the throes of change.
