    Feel good movie around a great topic: race to the moon, female rights, racial segregation. Good acting. Gripping nerdy story flavored with a little romance. Both genders will like this one.
  • Great movie!

    I watched this movie on a red eye flight, partly expecting to like it, part expecting I would fall asleep watching a cute movie. I never ended up sleeping. I enjoyed it so much. Definitely a must see and must purchase!

  • This movie is just a "feel good" movie for minorities.

    By California Movie Fanatic
    Most of the "facts" in this movie are GREATLY embellished, and Hollywood apparently allowed it so that more minorities would buy tickets. The fact is yes these women did some good things, but their white counterparts did just as good, if not better at the same job. The only praise I can give is that the makers of this movie did a great job in selling tickets to minorities who need SOMETHING to believe in. They just don't care if it's true or false or, in this case, greatly exaggerated.
  • Revisionist???

    By ken J.
    My grandfather worked for NASA during that time. He knew these women and the women before them. It was the culture of the time for blacks not to be seen as intelligent as whites. By the way I am white, conservative and Christian. Sorry guys this is true. The truth will comes out...always. If schools leave it out of the history books, hollywood will. Tell the truth..it will set u free.
  • No, you dont get to fabricate history out of thin air.

    Just thinking that kids out there will take this as a legit true story
  • This Should be listed under Historical Fiction

    By Nature Of Threat
    This movie is a joke. I challenge any one to look into the true events that are being presented as "true" in this film because virtually the entire move is crap. This is revisionist history garbage at its best. Just another piece of liberal garbage being churned out by Hollywood to support their divisive narrative. What a total waste of time and money
  • Somewhat truthful

    By loisjean
    I liked the movie, however, i do feel they were not totally honest with the racism. It was much worse. Were scientists better than others? Doubtful, considering the small numbers of women allowed into their hallowed ranks. The acting was very good, I think it's sad that we really haven't improved that much. Women are still not encouraged to take a path toward science, i think it could be the same for some people of color. People of Asian decent seem to be more prevalent than Blacks or Hispanics. So who knows how much further along we could be if everyone with an interest was encouraged to get into it? Glad I watched it, it was inspiring.
  • Not based on fact

    By Bob-Smith
    Movies that claim to be based on true events should be based on fact and not fiction....
