Based on the best-selling book by Margot Lee Shetterly, and directed by Theodore Melfi (St. Vincent), Hidden Figures uncovers the incredible true story of a brilliant group of young African-American women who formed an elite team of mathematicians that helped NASA win the space race against the Soviet Union. Spirited and revelatory, Hidden Figures stars Oscar® nominee Taraji P. Henson (Empire, Benjamin Button, Hustle & Flow), Academy Award® winner Octavia Spencer (Allegiant, Fruitvale Station, The Help), singer Janelle Monáe making her motion picture debut and two time Oscar® winner Kevin Costner (Black or White, Field of Dreams, Dances with Wolves).
