HIDDEN FIGURES

HIDDEN FIGURES

“HIDDEN FIGURES soars in bringing their stories to light and it’s long past due.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“…stirs your soul as you watch their story unfold… Henson, Spencer and Monáe give a master class in how it should be done.” – John Black, Color Magazine

“It’s refreshing to go to the movies and see a film about a time when America strove for true greatness, international pre-eminence, and scientific primacy.” – Kilian Melloy, EDGE

“This is about as good as mainstream inspirational biopics get.” – Bob Chipman, Geek.com

“It makes our eyes wander and our ears perk, always on the look out for those who may next pioneer us into greater, undiscovered territories.” – Allyson Johnson, The Young Folks

“…thanks to an intelligent script, captivating performances and thoughtful direction (not to mention gorgeous production design), this is a film that deserves a spot on Oscar ballots this year and social studies classrooms for years to come.” – Kristofer Jenson, C-Ville Weekly

“What is most important about HIDDEN FIGURES is that this eye-opening story is told at all.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

 

FENCESFENCES

FENCES is about how certain personalities can keep you in or keep you out.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“This is a filmed play, not a movie, and the rare moments outside of Troy’s house or backyard fails to “open it up.” – Dan Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Washington directs this massive emotional load with great delicacy.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices
