Melissa W’s review published on Letterboxd :
It was interesting watching this with my parents, none of us having seen it before (I read the book and I gave it to Dad but he hasn't read it, yet). My Dad majored in physics and ended up working for McDonnell-Douglas BECAUSE of the space race. He had no idea any of this was going on in the behind the scenes.
On the movie front this is a well put-together Hurrah! of a movie that should have got way more Oscar attention than it did. Janelle Monáe is not only an excellent actress (I had really only been aware of her as a singer) but she is made to wear those 1960s clothes to perfection. Loved it.
