Hidden Figures is a 2016 American biographical drama film directed by
Theodore Melfi and written by Melfi and Allison Schroeder. It is loosely
based on the 2016 non-fiction book of the same name by Margot Lee Shetterly
about African American female mathematicians who worked at the National
Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) during the Space Race. The film
stars Taraji P. Henson as Katherine Johnson, a mathematician who calculated
flight trajectories for Project Mercury and other missions. The film also
features Octavia Spencer as NASA supervisor and mathematician Dorothy
Vaughan and Janelle Monáe as NASA engineer Mary Jackson, with Kevin Costner,
Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Mahershala Ali, Aldis Hodge and Glen Powell in
supporting roles.

Principal photography began in March 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia and wrapped up
in May 2016. Other filming locations included several other locations in
Georgia, including East Point, Canton, Monroe, Columbus and Madison.

Hidden Figures had a limited release on December 25, 2016, by 20th Century
Fox, before going wide in the United States on January 6, 2017. It received
critical acclaim, with praise for the performances, particularly that of
Henson, Monáe and Spencer, the writing, direction, cinematography, emotional
tone and historical accuracy. The film was a commercial success, grossing
$236 million worldwide against its $25 million production budget. Deadline
Hollywood noted it as one of the most profitable releases of 2016, and
estimated that it made a net profit of $95.5 million.[4]

The film was chosen by National Board of Review as one of the top ten films
of 2016[5] and received various awards and nominations, including three
nominations at the 89th Academy Awards, including Best Picture. It also won
the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a
Motion Picture.
