Hidden Figures is quite formulaic, but nonetheless entertaining, and, as it depicts real lives and history, somewhat edifying. My own experience causes me to question the accuracy of events within the NASA centers. The math and operations often seemed more Hollywood than scientific. A scant few viewers will notice this glitch.
To put it another way, the Rotten Tomatoes (yes, still useful) summary:
In heartwarming, crowd-pleasing fashion, Hidden Figures celebrates overlooked — and crucial — contributions from a pivotal moment in American history.
The timing on this movie is good too, given the politics of the clown administration. 7/10
