‘Harriet’ tells the extraordinary tale of the life of Harriet Tubman from her life as a slave, to her escape, to her transformation into “Moses”, one of America’s greatest hero’s. ‘Harriet’ stars Cynthia Erivo (Bad Times at the El Royal, Widows) as Harriet Tubman. ‘Harriet also stars Joe Alwyn (Mary Queen of Scots), Janelle Monae (Hidden Figures, Moonlight), Leslie Odom Jr (Murder on the Orient Express), and Henry Hunter Hall (Waist Deep).
This movie is pretty much what I thought it would be. The trailer’s made this movie look powerful and uplifting, and that’s exactly what is was. Cynthia Erivo nailed the inspirational role of Harriet Tubman. I’m sure Hollywood dramatized and added a few things,but regardless this is a great film about one of the most important people in American history.
