Reviews:
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A]n instructive and wildly entertaining eye-opener....It simply needs telling, and the fact it gets three dynamite actresses to tell it does poetic justice to both these women and the Civil Rights movement at large." - 12/28/2016 Rolling Stone


"[T]he film, directed by Theodore Melfi, turns the entwined careers of Katherine Goble, Mary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan into a rousing celebration of merit rewarded and perseverance repaid." - 12/22/2016 New York Times


"[S]tars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe are powerfully effective and its little-known true story is so flabbergasting that resistance is all but futile." - 12/22/2016 Los Angeles Times


3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Under its great acting, bouncy Pharrell score and message is a film that’s as geeked out about math as a superhero film is about its comic book origins....This is one of the year's best films." - 12/20/2016 RogerEbert.com


"[O]ne of the most gratifying qualities of HIDDEN FIGURES is how it bursts onto the screen like a shot of distilled, exhilarating joy." - 12/22/2016 Washington Post


"HIDDEN FIGURES pays tribute to its subjects by doing the opposite of what many biopics have done in the past -- it looks closely at the remarkable person in the context of a community....The film celebrates individual mettle, but also the way its characters consistently try to lift others up." - 01/09/2017 The Atlantic


"[I]t’s a crowd-pleaser at heart, and the true stories it relates are too rich to want to do anything other than celebrate." - 01/04/2017 Boston Globe


"[Monae] fairly glows with life force." -- Grade: B+ - 01/05/2017 Entertainment Weekly


"Henson gives life to Katherine’s humility as well as her assertiveness; Spencer is reliably warm yet steely; and pop star Monae offers further evidence, after her memorable turn in MOONLIGHT, that she’s a compelling screen presence." - 12/10/2017 Hollywood Reporter


4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his splashy, feelgood period piece is every bit as enjoyable as a best picture Oscar-nominated blockbuster could hope to be." - 02/19/2017 The Guardian
