Review: Hidden Figures, 2016, dir. Theodore Melfi

hidden-figures-poster

Let me tell you: Based on the poster, I honestly expected to hate Hidden Figures with a passion. I expected it to be sappy feel-good bullshit; I expected it to do its history a series of disservices; I expected it to waste its talented leading actresses. But it doesn’t! At all! The film works! I don’t think I’ve been so happy to be wrong about a film all year long. Behold my positive words at Paste Magazine.
