The other Zoey 2023

A romcom with some computer science in it. The sine-function appears as well as the traveling salesmen problem and chess and some books in computer science. The movie tries hard to break stereotypes in computer science. Good: there indeed exists a women Turing award winner: Barbara Liskov. Bad: In the movie, a book with title "crytography girls" is mentioned. Why not take a real book? The book displayed does not seem to exist. One can read the author Auggie Rose. I could not find that book. Not that there are no books about women in cryptology: here are 4 books dealing with the topic: Code girls and the Bletchley girls and The women who smashed codes and of course The hidden figures which made it into a feature movie.
