=====================================================

My last encounter with that kind of movie was Green Book (2018), a feast of triteness and superficiality that goes beyond the point of no endurance – and ended in exhaustion as I couldn’t muster the power even for a very short review. I have nevertheless made an exception for this one because it seemed like something different and better. It is. At the very least, it is a most unusual look at the Space Race and the contribution to it of black women as mathematicians, engineers or computer specialists (in those ancient days when computers took whole rooms, and big ones at that, and segregation was a blatant reality). It’s a pleasant picture worth seeing. But that’s just the trouble: it’s too pleasant, too low-key, too sedate even. I’m not shocked by “colored” toilets or coffee pots. They seem much too silly to me. I don’t know if the facts were dramatised for the script, but if they were – well, I must say I would expect something rather more dramatic. The same goes for the humour which is the epitome of mildness. There is nothing to be said against the acting, the direction and the production, except that they are all somewhat wasted in this lacklustre hybrid between drama and comedy which ends up, predictably, without being either. I’m not sure what this timidity indicates, taking racism seriously or only pretending to do so. Either way, Taraji Henson and Octavia Spencer deserve better material than that. A movie like A Time to Kill (1996) forces you to take racism seriously, not to mention other matters that are not skin-deep. This one merely entertains, some of the time. ( )

The untold story of Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson – brilliant African-American women working at NASA and serving as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history – the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

Very enjoyable film about a slightly different perspective on the space race. ( )

Narra la historia nunca contada de tres brillantes mujeres científicas afroamericanas que trabajaron en la NASA a comienzos de los años sesenta (en plena carrera espacial, y asimismo en mitad de la lucha por los derechos civiles de los negros estadounidenses) en el ambicioso proyecto de poner en órbita al astronauta John Glenn.
