WE LIKE TO WATCH: EPISODE THIRTY THREE - HIDDEN FIGURES
Episode 33! Stu and Billy are back this week to discuss Hidden Figures!
Hidden Figures is a biographical drama film directed by Theodore Melfi (St. Vincent) and based on the non-fiction book of the same name by Margot Lee Shetterly about female African-American mathematicians at NASA.
It focuses on Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer), and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) who served as the brains behind one of the more important space missions in NASA's history: the launch of John Glenn into orbit, which turned around the Space Race, and pushed forward the strive to go further.
The film also features Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parson, Glen Powell, and Mahershala Ali in supporting roles.
As well as the film, Stu and I discuss what else we've been watching this week, and look over the latest in movie news.
As always it would make our day if you could take a couple of minutes to rate and reviews us on iTunes or drop us some feedback below! Really keen to have your input in the show.
