Hidden Figures


This was always going to win me over: an injustice righted, woven into a story about the human "computers" set at the dawn of the modern information technology age. The mathematician in me would've liked a little more about the technicalities of the problems being solved, but it's hard to see how that could be done without detracting from the main story.

A great film, but a little upsetting when you realise just how recently the events it depicts took place, and how some of the language and issues still resonate today. Let's not go back there.
