Hidden Figures (PG) Drama – In the early 1960s before computers, Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson) and her friends Dorothy (Octavia Spencer) and Mary (Janelle Monáe) were part of a group of women who literally “did the math” for NASA to put men in space. One of last year’s finest crowd-pleasers.
Lion (PG-13) Drama – A five-year-old Indian boy gets lost on an empty train. Eventually adopted by an Australian couple (Nicole Kidman and David Wenham). As an adult (Dev Patel), he uses Google Earth to locate his village and return to it.
Monster Trucks (PG) Adventure comedy – The infamous big budget flop, inspired by a studio executive’s four-year-old son’s idea, is based on real (but friendly) monsters who live inside trucks. Not a bad little kid flick.
