Time Well-Spent

The Missus and I spent Saturday evening (really, Saturday late afternoon) at the movies, which truth be told is a place where we spend very little time.  Working off of memory, I think the last time we had been to the movies prior to Saturday was last year when we saw Spotlight.  

We spend an incredible couple of hours watching Hidden Figures, which told the story of the under-acknowledged contributions made at NASA in the early days of this nation's Space Program by a group of African-American women, including Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson, at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.  

My unsolicited advice to one and all is to see this film.  I doubt very much that you shall regret the time you spend in the theater.  An extraordinary story, exceptionally well-told.
