Why Is Hidden Figures The Best Movie Of 2017?

Rotten Tomatoes states, "Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae)-brilliant African-American working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big."

"Hidden Figures is empowerment cinema at its most populist, and one only wishes that the film had existed at the time it depicts." -Peter Debruge from Variety

Rotten Tomatoes gave a glowing synopsis of this cultured-issued film. I believe that the casting department did an excellent job finding the perfect actors for the lead roles. I have to agree with Mr. Debruge on the critique of this epic film. This film is so empowering for women, especially black females that I wish it was available for the women who needed that encouragement the most. In our society today, it is still needed. And I believe this film is so relevant now because of the inequality that is currently displayed in our lives. Honestly, I wanted to go see another movie instead; however, I am so glad that I went to go see what my friend wanted to see. The movie was phenomenal. The film's purpose, screenplay, and the characters' portrayal is raw and compelling.

Female power is one of the best things to witness. The electricity that flows through the bond of determined and passionate women can make anyone listen. Watching these women come together for one purpose: to make a change, was so overwhelming. I was-- sorry. I AM so proud of the strong black women that have went before me. Not only the women who inspired this story, but all black females who fought for the rights of women. I definitely recommend for everyone to see this movie, regardless of race and gender.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
