Hidden Figures DVD
Based on the nonfiction book by Margot Lee Shetterly, this engaging drama relays the true--if seldom told--story of a group of African American women who worked as mathematicians at NASA in the early 1960s. The film follows three of the ladies (Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monáe) as they fight against the racial prejudice of the day and prove themselves to be instrumental and invaluable at a crucial point in the U.S. space program’s infancy. With Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, and Kevin Costner. 127 min. Widescreen; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, DVS 5.1, Spanish Dolby Digital stereo, French Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English (SDH), Spanish, French; featurettes; audio commentary; photo gallery.
