I would say happy Sunday, but you probably don’t want a reminder that you’re going back to your first full week of work in a while. I stayed pretty busy this weekend (as usual) and had to share with you a movie that I absolutely loved.
If you have not heard of it, it is the story of 3 black women that worked at NASA during the 60s as “computers”. I was excited to see this movie, I had first heard about it because IBM is a big sponsor of the film and I work very closely with them in my “day job”. The movie stars Janelle Monae, Octavia Spencer and Taraji P. Henson and each of them were amazing. I don’t want to give away too much of the movie, but I want to tell everyone that it is definitely worth the $15 to see and I think that they should show it in every high school math class, I even joked with a teacher that I met this weekend that it should be in her next lesson plan. I’m very glad that it did extremely well at the box office. I was afraid that it wouldn’t garner a lot of interest, since it is about a topic that doesn’t get a lot of attention. So, if you’re looking for a great, funny and feel-good movie, definitely check out Hidden Figures. And, if you’ve already seen it, I’d love to know what you think!
