It is based on the nonfiction book by  Margot Lee Shetterly, “Hidden Figures: The Story of the African-American Women Who Helped Win the Space Race.”

The cast members met up for dinner at Ecco in Midtown on Sunday, feasting on the restaurant's signature delicacy, fried goat cheese balls with black pepper and honey, in addition to dishes like the seared trout and risotto bianco.
