Rousing drama Hidden Figures recounts the remarkable true story of three black women who played a key behind the scenes role at NASA in the 1960s. With its terrific central trio of Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson and Janelle Monae, the movie is a surefire crowdpleaser and has already won over Unlimited crowds during last night's advance screening. We'll start with Shardle.
@cineworld Laughed, cried and found it so inspiring. What an incredible story— Shardle (@Shardal123) February 6, 2017
@cineworld a strong contender for best picture, what a phenomenal story that remained practically hidden from us all! Absolutely loved it— Esther (@SuperstarE3) February 6, 2017
And Krishele says it made for another top Unlimited screening.
Of course, the key question is this: will the movie bag any Oscars? It's been nominated for three, including a Best Supporting Actress nod for Octavia Spencer, so we extended the question to Unlimited members. Kirsty is one who's stumping for it.
@cineworld bloody hope so!i hope the incredible women it was based on feel it's done their story justice,it was brilliant— Kirsty (@millersty) February 6, 2017
Ben meanwhile is a bit more skeptical.
@cineworld Deserved nomination but not a winner for me. Enjoyed it a lot, but too many convenient happy moments that didn't ring true.— Ben Nicholls (@benjyboy65) February 6, 2017
And just to prove there's nothing like a bit of Oscars chat to instigate debate, Andrew is opting for another frontrunner.
@cineworld No. LaLa all the way!— Andrew (Stalli111) (@StallisMilitia) February 6, 2017
Next on the Unlimited agenda is Michael Keaton drama The Founder, the revealing true story of how McDonalds transformed into a global empire. The movie is screening in advance this Thursday.
