Since this movie was very well received, I was quite eager to check it out. Eventually, even though it was still slightly too sweet and upbeat for my taste, it was still a really solid historical drama. The first thing that I enjoyed was that these amazing black women didn’t need some white folks to succeed which was something that seriously bothered with such movies like ‘The Help’ or ‘The Blind Side’ which might have been really successful at the box-office but these movies were actually seriously overrated and I actually preferred this movie. It was also interesting to see how segregation actually got in the way for the USA in their quest to remain a super-power, in the race for space but also in general and, because of this backward way of thinking, they were actually wasting some of their greatest minds. Still, this movie gave me the feeling, obviously not on the purpose, that it was acceptable to treat these women like equals only because they were expectional. Of course, you might argue that you have to start somewhere but I thought it was seriously unfair to the average black folks who also deserved to be treated fairly. Anyway, to conclude, even though I don’t think it was anything really groundbreaking, it was still seriously inspiring and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
