Plot Summary of "Hidden Figures"

"Hidden Figures" tells the story of three African-American women working at NASA during the Space Race: Katherine Goble Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson. In 1961, Katherine is assigned to assist Al Harrison's Space Task Group, becoming the first Black woman on the team. Despite being a skilled mathematician, she faces discrimination and segregation at work, such as being forced to walk half a mile to use the nearest "Colored" bathroom. Mary identifies a design flaw in the heat shield team and applies for a NASA engineer position, but is told she needs additional courses. Dorothy learns that NASA has installed an IBM 7090 electronic computer that threatens to replace human computers, so she teaches herself and her co-workers programming and becomes a supervisor.

As the Soviet Union's successful launch of Yuri Gagarin increases pressure to send American astronauts into space, Katherine impresses Harrison by solving a complex mathematical equation from redacted documents. However, Stafford makes Katherine remove her name from reports and insists that "computers" cannot author them, crediting her work solely to himself. When discrepancies are found in the IBM 7090 calculations on the day of John Glenn's launch, Katherine is asked to check the landing coordinates. She delivers the results to the control room, and Harrison allows her inside. After a successful launch and orbit, Katherine supports Harrison's suggestion to leave the retro-rocket attached to help keep the heat shield in place, and Friendship 7 lands successfully.

The film concludes with a textual epilogue revealing the women's futures. Mary becomes NASA's first female African American engineer, Dorothy continues as NASA's first African American supervisor, and Katherine goes on to calculate the trajectories for the Apollo 11 and Space Shuttle missions. In 2015, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and in 2016, NASA dedicated the Langley Research Center's Katherine Johnson Computational Building in her honor.

Behind the Scenes of "Hidden Figures"

"Hidden Figures" is a biographical drama film directed by Theodore Melfi and written by Melfi and Allison Schroeder, based on the non-fiction book by Margot Lee Shetterly. The film was produced by Donna Gigliotti and Peter Chernin through Levantine Films and Chernin Entertainment, with Fox 2000 Pictures acquiring the film rights. The film features an all-star cast, including Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe, alongside Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali, Aldis Hodge, and Glen Powell.

Principal photography for the film began in March 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia, and wrapped up in May of the same year. The film was shot on location in several other cities in Georgia, including East Point, Canton, Monroe, Columbus, and Madison. To ensure historical accuracy, the filmmakers consulted with the families of the real-life women portrayed in the film and used archival footage of NASA's early space race era.

The film received critical acclaim, with particular praise for the performances of Henson, Spencer, and Monáe, as well as the writing, direction, cinematography, and historical accuracy. It was also a commercial success, grossing over $236 million worldwide against its $25 million production budget. "Hidden Figures" was chosen by the National Board of Review as one of the top ten films of 2016 and received various awards and nominations, including three nominations at the 89th Academy Awards, including Best Picture. The film also won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

One distinctive aspect of the film's production is the involvement of Pharrell Williams as a producer and composer. Williams wrote original songs and handled the music department and soundtrack of the film, alongside Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch. The film's soundtrack features a mix of contemporary music and original compositions, with a distinct '60s-inspired sound. Williams also served as an advocate for the film, helping to bring attention to its important message and themes of social justice and equality.

Hidden Genius

Hidden Figures is a movie that tells a story that has been hidden for far too long. The contributions of these brilliant African-American women were instrumental in NASA's success, and it is about time that their story is told. The performances of Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe are remarkable, and they bring the characters to life in a way that is both inspiring and emotional.

The movie captures the historical accuracy of the time period and the struggles that these women faced during a time of segregation and gender inequality. The script is well-written and balances the personal lives of the protagonists with their careers at NASA. The cinematography is also excellent and captures the essence of the 1960s era.

Overall, Hidden Figures is a must-watch movie that educates and entertains while highlighting the important contributions of these unsung heroes. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend it.
