I like this combination of the perfect inspirational biopic and the real world truth of how it really was but it's at a level that younger kids can understand. And those who don't know the history of John Glenn and the Liberty Seven will find the final arc exciting and rewarding to anyone who has been the smartest kid in the room.
The film isn't saying that these woman didn't suffer any indignities due to their color and sex but the worst of that is very sanitized. But this is how this biopic tells it's messages and honors it's heroes and I am totally fine with all of that. The three leads are very good and I will watch anything that Octavia Spencer does.
Some messages don't need to be over preached and this one sometimes annoys me by all the back people who also keep standing in the way of these three very smart and capable women until everyone FINALLY gets out of their way long enough for some real computer engineer and math magic to be done.
This is a definite case of 'if you like the trailer you will like the movie'.
