CRITICS

Following a pre-programmed trajectory marked #OscarsSoWhite, this biopic of the scientists behind John Glenn’s space flight is irresistibly up-lifting. Guardian 

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