One of the three main African-American women expresses being attracted to the white male astronaut characters.

The main character is a widowed single mother, and a subplot involves her romancing a new man.

No serious nudity or sexual content other than light dialogue and some kissing.

Footage (both vintage newsreel stock footage, and newly filmed material for the movie) does feature the attitudes towards African-Americans that were common at the time of filming, including growling police dogs ready to lunge at peaceful protesters. However the amount of actual violence shown on screen is very minimal.

Infrequent coarse language is voiced, but is relevant and justified by context.

There are several utterances of swear words in the film, such as "damn" and "bastard".

Parental guidance is advised.

The three main characters get drunk at home in one scene and dance around, though this is more of a playful, comical scene, and does not glorify alcohol.

The film features many "of the period" attitudes, including racism and discrimination towards African-Americans, which may be a bit shocking to younger viewers.

Set in 1960s U.S.A, 'Hidden Figures' is a biographical drama about three brilliant African-American mathematicians -- Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson -- and their contributions to space explorations carried out by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Using their calculations, NASA successfully completed their mission to send an astronaut into space and make a complete orbit of the Earth.
