Finally! It was about time to tell the story of these wonderful women…
An endless fight
…extraordinary, in their genius capacity, their bravery in the space race, a major stake at that time.
A matter of equality
The director, Theodore Melfi, shows with great accuracy the struggle of these women within NASA who simply wish to give the best of themselves, at a time when Afro Americans were fighting for equal rights.
He does a parallel between the changing of a world through the discovery of space and the revolution of American society.
And it will never be the same again.
The actresses are perfect in these characters driver by one will: succeed in science. But the director has his own vision, an non Manichean one.
The heroism of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson is, alas, still an actual matter.
