Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae Help NASA in 'Hidden Figures'

For those who remember 1980's The Right Stuff, featured in that movie were the three female African-American mathematicians whose calculations helped astronaut John Glenn become the first American to orbit the earth. Now their story finally takes center stage in this film coming out at Christmas, which is based on the non-fiction book by Margot Lee Shetterly. The actresses look great together, and it does give off a bit of a vibe similar to 2011's The Help, but I find this true life story a lot more interesting, so I'm looking forward to this. I hope it's decent, although director Theodore Melfi's debut film St. Vincent was only okay. Fingers crossed.
