News & Interviews for Hidden Figures
Critic Reviews for Hidden Figures
Most of this country's history - like most Hollywood movies - has been written by white men. 'Hidden Figures' is a great reminder of the unsung African-American women who contributed to all our accomplishments.
Hidden Figures doesn't try to push many artistic boundaries, but it tells its story so well that it doesn't really have to.
An assertion of humanity and civil rights that is pure cinematic nourishment for soul.
The story that Hidden Figures tells is so irresistible that you can almost forgive the fact that the movie itself is resistibly unoriginal.
Audience Reviews for Hidden Figures
Hidden Figures follows the narrative formula of many sports movies. We get the injustice, the teasing, the dirty looks, the undervalued appreciation for their ability and then that come from behind moment where everyone is proven wrong. It's all served in a pleasing, well-photographed family friendly creation. The overlooked advances from individuals forgotten by history can provide a cutting edge perspective into a historical event. As a piece of entertainment, Hidden Figures is entertaining enough. However, the sentimental uplift of this Hallmark greeting card of a movie doesn't scratch beneath the surface to plumb the depths of their experience. I can imagine that these women faced egregious behavior that undermined their human dignity. One would think Langley Research Center would be a place where analysis and intellectual ability was focused on much more than skin color. Apparently not. The screenplay doesn't examine harder. I wish it had delved deeper and examined why. This cursory study is content to present predictable tropes that are de rigueur for any tale of an underdog. These brave women deserve a powerful story, but Hidden Figures never expands beyond a shallow exploration to get to the heart of their struggle. The screenplay by Allison Schroeder and director Theodore Melfi is an inspirational saga of intellect triumphing over racism in a PG-rated tale. Hidden Figures is a feel-good diversion that will hopefully inspire people to study further. fastfilmreviews.com
In times when an escapist musical such as La La Land is being widely lauded as the film "we all need right now," Hidden Figures is essential viewing. Full review on filmotrope. com
A highly enjoyable and feelgood movie, but it's overly obvious Hollywood feel devalues the African American struggle as well as female struggle of the time.
