Questo film parla di momenti che hanno segnato la storia dell’umanità e delle persone che l’hanno plasmata con coraggio ed abilità fuori dal comune. Tra le scene che mi hanno emozionata di più ci sono la rimozione delle insegne dei bagni, il discorso di Mary al giudice e Dorothy che porta le ragazze alla IBM. Magnifico trio di protagoniste, una storia coinvolgente e vera. Degna di essere raccontata.
I'm always so conflicted by these biopics that make a horrendous period in history digestible, acknowledging, however, that there is a need to tell these stories in an uplifting way for mass audiences. I just hope it empowers more than it dismisses. Also, I am a white male, so take this with a grain of salt.
While it manages to show us a piece of history not many knew or cared about through good enough performances, it does little else to impress. It seems as if there was no spear like vision in in directing it making it jump from a place to another with no real purpose (much like a third of the scenes in the movie). The soundtrack, while fine never feels like it belongs, not even if contrasted with the oppressed tone.
'Basically competent' is probably the best descriptor for this movie, overall. The characters aren't especially deep or interesting, and there's probably not a moment you won't see coming (especially for a biopic of this nature), but it's basically engaging, in part due to the performances given by the three central actresses. And I'm sure it connected with the people it aims to represent.
An amazing and inspiring story of 3 brilliant black women at NASA who worked tirelessly on the space programme. In spite of their important mathematical and leadership inputs they suffered terrible pressures of segregation, insults and indignities of having to run the gauntlet in the rain to reach the black ladies bathrooms!
