"Hidden Figures" represents various themes of race and sex

Not that often do you see a film centering around a historical woman, let alone three, let alone African-American women, let alone the very women who sent the United States first man around the orbit of the Earth!

"Hidden Figures" is a 2016 biographical drama, based on the book of the same name by Margot Lee Shetterfly, telling the story of three best friends who worked on the NASA space program, and more specifically Project Mercury and later the Apollo II mission.

The story centers around brilliant mathematician and child prodigy, Katherine Johnson, fellow mathematician, Dorothy Vaughan and engineer-to-be, Mary Jackson as they worked toward sending the first man in orbit around the Earth.

What I liked most about this film was the various themes brought up in regards to race and sex.
