    A really good film which tells the story of three remarkable women who not only helped to lay the foundations of the US space program, but also advanced the cause of human equality. Beautifully and sensitively acted.

    It has been a long time since we have seen a really new idea come out of Hollywood and this certainly is one. The story line is great so is the acting. The inclusion of original 60s NASA footage is well placed and appreciated. The only thing is that the story is true so we're the background events of white:black segregation which in some respects are painful yet still is to the credit of the film. More of the same quality movies please.

    Here is a movie that deserves recognition for telling the stories of unknown heroes behind one of the biggest events in human history, putting people in space. Taraji P Henson and Octavia Spencer shine in this fascinating drama. It's about people trying to find a voice in a widely male dominated society and these stories are the stories that need to be told. Never underestimate the power of women, they deserve the credit and this film gives them justice. A truly inspirational movie and a great addition to any film collection. I will certainly pre-order this and hope that it is released soon

    Such a wonderful, intelligent, touching, funny and very down-to-earth film. I'm honestly surprised that it didn't get more recognition. Would definitely recommend.
