THIS MOVIE IS BASED ON

the true story of three fe­male African-Amer­i­can math­e­ma­ti­cians who helped NASA launch their manned space­flight pro­gramme. What Kather­ine John­son (Taraji P Hen­son), Dorothy Vaughan (Oc­tavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) ac­com­plished is truly in­spi­ra­tional, es­pe­cially dur­ing a time when civil lib­er­ties for AfricanAmer­i­cans were lim­ited. This feel-good movie is filled with pos­i­tive mes­sages like the im­por­tance of team­work and that per­se­ver­ance al­ways pays off. Plus, the sound­track by Phar­rell Wil­liams is bound to spawn at least a cou­ple of chart-top­pers. Opens Feb 23. (PG)
