“Meet the women you don’t know, behind the mission you do.”
Thanks to 20th Century Fox, the story of 3 very brilliant female mathematicians, who worked at NASA, will be told through the big screen. The film, titled “Hidden Figures”, stars Golden Globe Award-winning actress Taraji P. Henson, BAFTA-winning star Octavia Spencer, and singer Janelle Monáe.
Based on Margot Lee Shetterly’s biographical book of the same name, the official plot synopsis is as follows:
“’Hidden Figures’ is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (played by Taraji Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (played by Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (played by Janelle Monáe) — brilliant African-American women working at Nasa, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: The launch of astronaut John Glenn (played by Glen Powell) into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanised the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.”
