REVIEW: Much can be said about this movie adaptation but nothing said can measure to the impact this movie can make in the viewers life. There is so much this film explores from racism to gender neutrality. I was taken aback by the depth in which these characters and story represents people of color. It was such a wonderful story of perseverance and high achievements for a group of women whose need to overcome differences surpassed the need of those who might’ve wanted to oppressed them.
I could go on and say a lot more about this film, but nothing I say will cover the magnificent of its depth and meaning. Just go see it, learn about these women who dominated silently in a world of men and made history. Learn about each of their story, learn about what they had to overcome and learn about what they accomplished. We have them to thank for how far we have come today as a society and how far we have come in space travel.
Note: This is a movie that should be watched by the whole family, not because it is a fantastic story, but because we need future generations to have the same mind set as these women who fought their way into shaping our future.
