NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson appears onstage with Janelle Monae, Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer during the 89th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 26, 2017 in Hollywood, California.
Quick drawing of the triumphant trio of Hidden Figures. I loved this scene, and this was my favorite outfit of Janelle Monae’s character. I could not be happier that it beat out Rogue One at the box office, y’all.
Today we met Katherine Dely, Mona introduced her to Hanna (and us) but she has a “Bethany Young” vibe all over her head.
Before continue reading, read my previous theory about Mona and Caleb here.
Well, Mona and Caleb are working together, as I say in that theory. Right after Mona saw Hanna’s portfolio, she inmediatly told her that she had an idea. Suspicious, right? She thought really fast but no, it was all planned. Caleb and her talked about this, about making Hanna focus on her fashion so they could introduce Bethany/Katherine in the game.
She was in Radley (Emma Dumont posted this picture), we’ll see a flashback about Bethany’s story. You can see that girl is Katherine with blonde hair.
The senator adopted her (yes, I think this is true because something like a senator’s daughter is easy to check if it’s true). Once she’s adopted, she changed her name to Katherine so they could play the game with Caleb and Mona.
That doctor at the end, it’s not Wren. I see a feminine body, tall and has short hair, like Katherine/Bethany.
The choice to give Hidden Figures an Oscar-qualifying run ahead of its wide release next year was a wise one: This movie is a home run, a veritable fist-pump of a film that celebrates the tremendous success of these women while never forgetting exactly how difficult their journey to the stars was.
Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe are all terrific — the latter coming off an incredible debut year as a film actress, having also co-starred in Moonlight — and the supporting ensemble is strong across the board. (Hidden Figures makes for a great best ensemble SAG nominee.) Their performances, with Schroeder and Melfi’s smart script in tow, keep these figures from becoming mere chess pieces in history. Their wants, their needs, their loves and their pains are rendered with specificity and sympathy.
In truth, Hidden Figures would have been required viewing no matter what because of its historical importance. But now, it’s a movie you’ll be anxious to see again minutes after walking out of the theater. Read our full review
