The story of three mathematical geniuses who happened to work at NASA's first installation in Langley, Va. The movie is well-written delivering a well modulated Civil Rights line, humor, romance, and the daily struggle these three ladies had trying to grow into their own inside a system working against them. I enjoyed this and recommend it for both entertainment and enlightenment. Just try to get passed some of the obvious hooey of the early 60's.
Ps. The epilogue is rich with photographs of our three heroines. Nice touch putting real faces to the actors.
reelsmith's axiom: Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.
Saw it last night. Grandkids were shocked to see the "colored" restrictions. I was ten at the time and remember well the separate bathrooms, water fountains, lunch counters and all the rest. I was completely ignorant of it going on at NASA. Good film and excellent performances.
