LIFT OFF! 🚀Hidden Figures + Extended Intro

  • Harris Academy South Norwood 2 Cumberlow Avenue London SE25 6AE (map)

Dir. Theodore Melfi • 2016 • US • Drama • 127 mins • Cert PG

The incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) - the brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit.

Crossing gender and race lines, defying expectations and battling stereotypes, these women have inspired generations of people to aim high and dream big.

With a star-studded cast, powerful performances and an infectious toe-tapping soundtrack by Pharrell Williams, Hidden Figures is a celebration of achievement, where only the sky's the limit.
