    What a great movie. 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.

  • This is a fiction

    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.

    Looked them up, they never did what the movie said they did.

    I'm ecstatic that this story was finally told, but terribly sad it took so long to happen. This is just one of countless stories lost to history. I hope this movie helps to open the flood gates and that we begin to see more of these amazing stories brought to light.

    Wow, a really nice and inspiring movie. For those who are having a problem with "based on true events" - that's Hollywood code for, "we don't want to get sued for ripping off a storyline so good we could not come up with it ourselves". This movie does not claim to be a documentary, but an embelishment of events that lend themselves to an inspiring story. What's wrong with that?
  • Very good movie

    This is a very good movie. Not great, but very good: good acting and it's historical. They gloss over the math, which would have made the movie more or interesting. There are very few good lines and fewer memorable moments. But the story itself is memorable. We enjoyed it.
