Based on a best-selling and groundbreaking book by Margot Shetterley, this movie tells the hitherto forgotten story of three black women in America and their stunning contributions to the sixties Space Race, at a time when the USA was falling behind the Soviets. Shocking in its portrayal of everyday segregation - you won’t forget the coffee pot or that long walk in those shoes - this movie tells its story in an accessible and uplifting way. Kevin Costner and a scary Kirsten Dunst do a good job in support while the three leads steal the show.


‘...story of NASA’s past that makes for compelling and important cinema.’
