This weekend I finally got a chance to see Hidden Figures. The large theater was two-thirds full or so, mostly white (as one might expect in South Huntsville), mostly women and girls (you missed out, dudes, it was great).
There was a profound mix of audience laughter and silence throughout. At the end of the historical/photographic epilogue, there was a moment of silence into which a female voice clearly whispered: "That was amazing!" Then LOUD APPLAUSE.
That's the world I thought I was living in. I want it back. For real.
Let's go get it.
