"Hidden Figures", Meet The Women You Don't Know Behind The Mission You Do

I always enjoy science only in movies because it has been horrible enough! Particularly when i was  still a student. That means, by default,  I adore an engineering and scientist a lot. Either in real life or big screen, portrayed by an actor. When Jim Sturgess starring as Ben Campell in "21" (2008), I believe that someone whose math skill is an awesome no matter what. Hence, I keep on watching similar movies about years to come. 

Today, i just finished "Hidden Figures". It is an historical dramedy that you must watch. It rises to the top spot of the weekend box office for the second week in a row. I don't know when exactly "La La Land" snatch the first postition from Fox's other December released movie. 


Starring by Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe, "Hidden Figures" is an untold story of briliant African-American women working at NASA. Have you already imagine that? Back to 1960s, gender and race are still to be serious problems in America. Many kind of racism towards negro women appear in this movie. Public transportation, college education, access to the library and toliet for colored were seperated from the white world. 

I'm pretty sure this movie will remind you with "The Help" in 2011. But in this stunning work from Theodore Melfi as a director, the negro women aren't a maid anymore. They are (Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson) the visionary trio croessed all gender and race to inspire generations to dream big and aim higher. They served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astrounaut John Glenn into space. 

My favorite dialogues were actually describe their struggle to optimally think, breath and deal being a negro women. Here the dialogues are:

I plan on being an engineer at NASA. But I can't do that without taking those classes at that all white high school. And I can't change the color of my skin. So, I have no choice but to be the first. _Mary Jackson_
There are no colored bathrooms in this building, or any building outside the West Campus. Which is half a mile away! Did you know that? I have to walk to Timbuktu just to relieve my self! And I can't use one of the handy bikes. Picture that, Mr. Harrisson?. My uniform, skirt below the knees and my heels. And simple necklace pearls. Well, I don't own pearls. Lord knows you don't pay the colored enough to afford pearls! And I work like a dog day and night, living on coffee from a pot noen of you want me to touch! So, excuse me if I have to go to the restroom a few times a day! _Katherine Johnson_
