Synopsis 3.5 stars out of 4 -- [A]n instructive and wildly entertaining eye-opener....It simply needs telling, and the fact it gets three dynamite actresses to tell it does poetic justice to both these women and the Civil Rights movement at large.[T]he film, directed by Theodore Melfi, turns the entwined careers of Katherine Goble, Mary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan into a rousing celebration of merit rewarded and perseverance repaid.[S]tars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe are powerfully effective and its little-known true story is so flabbergasting that resistance is all but futile.3.5 stars out of 5 -- Under its great acting, bouncy Pharrell score and message is a film that’s as geeked out about math as a superhero film is about its comic book origins....This is one of the year's best films.[O]ne of the most gratifying qualities of HIDDEN FIGURES is how it bursts onto the screen like a shot of distilled, exhilarating joy.HIDDEN FIGURES pays tribute to its subjects by doing the opposite of what many biopics have done in the past -- it looks closely at the remarkable person in the context of a community....The film celebrates individual mettle, but also the way its characters consistently try to lift others up.[I]t’s a crowd-pleaser at heart, and the true stories it relates are too rich to want to do anything other than celebrate.[Monae] fairly glows with life force. -- Grade: B+Henson gives life to Katherine’s humility as well as her assertiveness; Spencer is reliably warm yet steely; and pop star Monae offers further evidence, after her memorable turn in MOONLIGHT, that she’s a compelling screen presence.4 stars out of 5 -- [T]his splashy, feelgood period piece is every bit as enjoyable as a best picture Oscar-nominated blockbuster could hope to be.Three female African-American mathematicians (Taraji P. Henson, Octavia L. Spencer, and Janelle Monae) provide crucial calculations for NASA's space race against the Soviets, all while dealing with the racist and sexist assumptions of their white co-workers. Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, and Jim Parsons co-star in this adaptation of the book of the same name by Margot Lee Shetterly. Directed by Theodore Melfi.
