    I don't know how accurately the film portrays the actual events, but that hardly matters. This is not a documentary. This is a presentation of how courage, tenacity and dignity overcomes bone-headed bigotry. It is shameful that it has taken so long for this inspiring story to be told. Even if a little simplistic at times, the story is told well, acted beautifully and moved me to tears. It is a must-see for anyone who aspires to being a mature human being.

    Wasn't sure what to expect but I found this to be a riveting film with wonderful cast performances from all. Superb story, scary to think how black people were treated. Absolutely stand out performances by Octavia Spencer and Taraji P Henson. Great to see Kevin Costner too.

    Beautifully made film based on an incredible true story. As soon as I finished watching it I promised myself I'd sit and watch it again with my daughter one day.
  • I have been so moved and inspired by any movie.

    Honestly, I was sat in tears and left speechless. The history within the movie and the work of three coloured woman that changed the way in NASA viewed and respected employees to be the beginning for other businesses to the same… it is inspiring and really encouraging. It's so inspiring and especially for all women. Not just those of colour. Those who are undervalued who strive to achieve the career in which they wish to pursue are able to overcome anything and be noticed, praised and feel proud knowing they did their work correctly and hence positive results. Just truly inspiring.

    Had me hooked from the beginning. Who really knew that there was Afro Americans women in Nassau back in the day? Well this film for me really showed the struggle to a certain extent of those women back then. Fab film will be buying it!!
