In the early days of NASA, black women were employed as “computers” to help calculate the complicated math involved in space flight. This film tells the amazing story of 3 of these exceptional women (played by Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monáe). The spunky script peppers the continuous indignities and inequities that are heaped upon them with humor that adds warmth and humanity. Their performances are all winning. This film is fascinating in exploring the early history of our space program, but it also delves into the discrimination against these women in an easy to swallow, entertaining package. A few snappy songs by Pharrell Williams adds even more verve.
