Wow. From its opening scene its apparent this is a great mix of meaningful, challenging, and entertaining content.
The weirdness of segregation and sexism and their deleterious effects on Virginia society, productivity, personal development, and NASA is shocking. The personal battles of the characters and convincing portrayals are as compelling as they are disturbing.
The NASA story and the Cold War pressures create a great environment to explore the characters.
Another ‘based on a true story’ movie, this one you really have to see. Some great acting, jarring events, and a good story.
