The Production

Astonishing discoveries await Henrietta Leavitt as she maps distant stars in galaxies beyond our own. This brilliant, headstrong pioneer must struggle, though, for recognition in the man’s world of turn-of-the-century astronomy. In this exquisite blend of science, history, family ties, and fragile love, a passionate young woman must map her own passage through a society determined to keep a woman in her place. A stunningly beautiful tale, based on the true story and science of early 20th century female “computers” at Harvard Observatory.
