Hidden Figures (PG)

This is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer seen in ‘The Help’) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe), brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. Screen writer and director Theodore Melfi Oscar nominated  for this film.

"In heartwarming, crowd-pleasing fashion, Hidden Figures celebrates overlooked -- and crucial -- contributions from a pivotal moment in American history.” (Rotten Tomatoes 93%).

United Kingdom (12A)

United Kingdom (12A)

Thursday, March 2


 

Directed by the talented Amma Asante, in 1948 Seretse Khama, heir to Botswana, marries Ruth Williams a white office worker from London. This film merges the personal & geo politics of the era.

 

"A United Kingdom is one of those true-life stories so poignant, you'll wonder why it took so long to become a movie. African tribal leader Seretse Khama and a British clerk called Ruth Williams fall in love in late 1940s London, but have to resist the British Empire at its nastiest to see things through. It’s the stuff of which great power ballads are made". Phil De Semlyen for Empire Magazine
