Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae) served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. This stunning achievement restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race between Russia and the USA, and galvanised the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
Directed by Theodore Melfi (St. Vincent), and written by Allison Schroeder (Pineapple Express), HIDDEN FIGURES was nominated for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actress for Octavia Spencer at the 89th Academy Awards®.
