One of the benefits of Marvin's working part time is the ability to go see a movie at one in the afternoon on a weekday. On Tuesday the prices are lower and we got the Senior Citizen Discount so we had a lovely afternoon that was economical as well. And by the way, apparently lots of old people go to the mid day movies on Tuesday judging by the demographics of our theater.
Marvin, being a physicist and a long time employee for the defense industry, wanted to see this movie. I am not a mathematician but I wanted to see it as well. It was one of the best movies we have seen in quite a while.
These actresses did a great job at portraying the ladies who broke the race barriers at Langley Air Force Base in the early 60s. Mary, on the left, aspired to be the first black woman to become an engineer at Langley. Catherine, in the middle, was a genius when it came to figures. Her mind was amazing. And Octavia Spencer played Dorothy. Dorothy was a pioneer in computer work. She and her "ladies" programmed and managed the first IBM computer at Langley.
I give this movie five stars and a thumbs up!! Check it out if you have the chance.
