Hidden Figures (PG) opens nationwide today. This wonderful movie highlights the important work that helped break down color barriers during the space race of the 1960s. Brilliant cast in a compelling true story.
Our rating: 5 out of 5

What to Watch at Home:
Florence Foster Jenkins (PG13) Another movie based on a true story, this  entertaining story had a few plot elements that were somewhat puzzling.
Our rating: 3.75 out of 5

Equals (PG13) This utopian story was incredibly dull, with a plot that was too similar to others, but not as entertaining as any of them.
Our rating: 1.5 out of 5
