You know those dramatic reenactments that feature in murder mystery shows where it’s like watching aliens pretend to be people because while everything looks normal enough, the interactions are just ever so slightly stiff and unnatural, like everyone is super aware of the camera on them?

Hidden Figures had a big opening weekend. There are no words to express how happy this makes me. The fact that this film made money has power. It means that, hopefully, we’ll get to see more stories about the nameless, faceless women of colour who made history. As Lainey mentioned in her intro yesterday Full Story

Look, I might argue that the TV ladies’ roundtable was a little more fun and rollicking, but there is no denying this was a delicious interview, whether you consume it on video (again, it’s an hour, but it doesn’t feel that long) or in print. Full Story
