5. Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures ($15)

The Skinny: This recent film follows three black women who made history at NASA, and it's based on a true story, which it all the more inspiring. Though Katherine (Taraji P. Henson) and Colonel Jim Johnson (Mahershala Ali) are the central love birds in Hidden Figures, we're a huge fan of Mary (Janelle MonΓ‘e) and Levi Jackson's (Aldis Hodge) supportive relationship.

The Kicker: "I don’t want to see you get hurt. NASA’s never given you gals your due, having another degree won’t change that. Civil rights ain’t always civil.”

The Takeaway: Mary is a hard-working and independent trailblazer with a stellar sense of humor. And the support her husband Levi shows her is seriously heart-warming. We think this is what an ideal relationship looks like: You don't always have to agree, but you should always support and respect one another's individuality and personal pursuits.
