The incredible untold true story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) & Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. This stunning achievement galvanized the world and inspired generations to dream big.

    Again, disappointed by this overhype world. I keep falling for it because I’m a movie goer. This is race bait. The last racially charged movie that was worth watching was “the help”. This goes in the can with “the Butler.”

    As an aeronautical engineer, I worked at NASA Langley between 1962 and 1979. What the film tried to depict was definitely NOT NASA Langley, not even close.

    It's so funny reading some of these negative views that says the events or siturations that happened in this movie are fiction. The movie was amazing and highlighed the contributions (that were/are often not acknowledged) African Amercan women made to such an important part of history during a very hateful time. Must see!

    So I went and did some research & found that actually these women did accomplish the things pointed out in the movie. I would like for those stating that the events were not real to point out why so that they may enlighten us. Personally, I would have loved to have studied this in school. Some of the other characters in the movie were made up however, the main characters & their stories were true. GREAT MOVIE.

    Racial, historic revisionist propaganda at it's purest form.
  • This is pure BS

    This story is not based on a true story. It takes the tiniest germ of truth and parades it as a factual retelling of history. As a black AMERICAN I don't feel like we need anymore evil white people movies to further exploit an already racially charged time in society. But even more importantly, NONE OF THIS MOVIE IS FACT BASED! I'm proud as an AMERICAN of our wonderful country's accomplishments in the space race..it was one of our finest hours. I'm okay with the fact that white men led the charge...you all should be too. Blacks don't need to shoehorn themselves into American History that we weren't involved in...it's really disigenuous and wreaks of desperation. Oh! Look at us! We helped with the space program too! It's pathetic. Go rent Glory instead and see some real Black Americans make real American history.
