Holly On Hollywood
by Holly McClure
“Hidden Figures” is based on the true stories about three black women Katherine (Taraji P. Henson), a mathematical prodigy, Dorothy (Octavia Spencer) a computer supervisor and aspiring engineer Mary (Janelle Monáe), who worked for NASA during the 1960’s, in a racially segregated, male dominated workplace. Katherine is a mathematical genius who’s assigned with getting John Glenn (Glen Powell) and other astronauts, to and from space. Al Harrison (Kevin Costner) is her supervisor who sees her potential and protects her from unfriendly fellow workers. Dorothy is repeatedly denied a promotion and treated with disdain by her immediate boss (Kirsten Dunst). And Mary is denied the chance to become an engineer when she tries to take graduate-level physics courses. Jim Parsons also stars.
