SmuttyCat loves the Age of the Geek, especially Girl Geeks. This Christmas movie season brings us Hidden Figures, the till now untold story of the women who made the moon landing possible.
There are not enough words to describe the beautiful, nuanced and uplifting performances by Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer & Janelle Monáe. And let’s not forget one of SmuttyCat’s favorite geeks, Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory. Hidden Figures is a movie of triumph for gender, class, race and all cultures. It is a beautiful moment when America remembered that we are all for one and one for all. And that working together achieved the impossible.
And most importantly, it is inspiration for every girl geek wondering if she should follow her tech dreams. The answer in Hidden Figures is a resounding ‘yes’.
Hidden Figures lands in theaters on January 6, 2017. Start the New Year with fun and let SmuttyCat know if you loved this movie.
