Hidden Figures is a biographical drama that proves behind every great man is an even greater woman – or in this case, three brilliant women with the brains and bravery to go against sexist and racist stereotypes. Directed by Theodore Melfi with a screenplay co-written with Allison Schroeder, the film stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe in the lead roles. Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, and Jim Parsons are also in the cast.
Katherine Johnson, a brilliant African-American physicist, space scientist, and mathematician, worked with her two colleagues, Dorothy Vaughn (Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Monae) in Langley Research Center. The trio were instrumental in the United States’ space program because of their significant contributions to Project Mercury and the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. Their work may have largely been unrecognized but their contributions are now seeing the light of day.
Watch the Hidden Figures on Putlockers now and admire the brilliant intellect and bravery of these three women!
