I always read the 1 and 2 star reviews just to see what people's take is on a film. I seriously wonder if the individuals giving this film 1 or 2 stars actually watched the same film! I'm guessing that most if not all are written by people too young to have experienced even the tail end of race relations in the US in the 60s and 70s, and are applying that filter to their opinion. Do you think they made it up about the separate drinking fountains, rest rooms, and back of the bus??? Unfortunately, No. Is it so difficult to believe ANY woman would have had the brains and abilities to so what these women did? But I digress.
The film was well written, directed, and acted. It was great to see the original footage of liftoff used in the film. I was glad to see the update at the end of the film, telling just a little more about the history of these brilliant women after the time period of the film. These were real women who clearly had a groundbreaking impact on many aspects of our country. I think it is a fitting tribute to amazing women at an exciting and difficult time in our history.
