First, and this is important, for everyone here who comments that the movie is untrue or 100% fiction -- they are wrong. There are certainly some Hollywood embelishments, but the story and events are real, and you can check this online where credible publications write about the "West Computers" at NACA, which later became NASA. Most of the events in the movie are historically accurate. Look it up for yourselves if you don't believe this post. One example: John Glenn really did request that Katherine Johnson recheck and confirm the IBM calculated trajectories. This is documented.

This is such a good movie. Fascinating, well-written screenplay with no uncomfortable dead zones. It's hard to comprehend just how brilliant these women are when you're an average Joe like me, but I am in awe of them. The acting is wonderful, really heartfelt and sensitive. The production is stellar. One of the best movies I've seen this year.


It is so inspiring for women for all races. I commend the dignity and humor they had to endure in the space program. When no one step forward on who they are, they spoke up for themselves. Thank you for making this movie.

History rewritten, not sure why?

This movie is history rewritten and hurts the actual women and their accomplishments. Of course, America is about believing anything your told, as long as its on TV or Movie and includes a minority. This movie should have come with a warning sticker "NOT" a documentary. Oh well . . .
