Three brilliant African-American women at NASA -- Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) -- serve as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn (Glen Powell) into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world.
Today we delve into our first real "History" genre movie. Yes we've talked about "Glory" in our War episode and "The Theory of Everything" in our Romance episode, but now we talk about important landmarks in U.S. history.
We are the Reel Feels Podcast, every other Wednesday we'll bring you a new movie with all the feels you can handle. We'll laugh, we'll cry and possibly restrain the frustrations to curse the heavens. But what you can count on is two guys sharing their love of cinema with you.
Please leave us a review and share your "reel" feelings.
