Hidden Figures - T. Melfi 2017

The plot : Three female black scientists make their way at NASA in the early 1960s.

My enlightened view : It's all a matter of perspective, really. A bit like 'Battleship' (though I reckon their similarities end there), it depends on how you see it.

As a history lesson, it's all the more excellent as it involves both gender and racial equality and - perhaps even more importantly - young adults not only get it, but seem to love it.

As a work of art, it's more conventional than I can find words to express.

Still, taking my thirteen year old daughter to see this and having her love it absolutely made my day!
