Hidden Figures is a film about racism and sexism in Pre Civil Rights Act Virginia that wants you to know that it’s a film about racism and sexism in Pre Civil Rights Act Virginia. The film claims to be based on ‘true events’ however after a bit of research, you discover that while the three main women in the film are based on real people, just about every other person in this film didn’t exist in real life. As a matter of fact, characters such like the ones played by Kristen Dunst and Jim Parsons are created solely to represent certain racist and sexist attitudes that existed during that time but seems to be largely made up for the sake of the movie. That is really my main problem with the film; they spend so much time hammering in the discrimination aspect for the viewer that they miss telling an actually pretty good story on film.
