Harriet is a fine movie that will tug at the heart. Cynthia Erivo did an incredible job in the title role. The supporting cast was excellent as well. I believe everyone should see this movie to learn an important part of American history. However, parents should view the film first and decide if and when it is appropriate for their children to watch. The musical score was a fine addition to the movie. Would have like to have seen a more in dept extra about the historical significance of Harriet Tubman.
I enjoyed this movie because of its strong depiction of African Americans doing whatever they could to flee slavery. For the most part, the story is true to life, though some liberties have been taken for artistic or theatrical enhancement. But the basic facts are there and the cast did a wonderful job in presenting the narrative.
The acting is incredible telling the story of a remarkable woman committed to helping so many others out of slavery to freedom. The story is a great one to tell in our days of more hate in the country. I enjoyed this movie and feel it should be recommended for Black History Month.
This movie was inspiring, uplifting and motivating. Learn a lot more about Harriet Tubman life I didn't know before. No matter how hard your visions or dreams may seem, trust in God and with perseverance and hard work you can do anything.
This was really a terrific movie about the harrowing journey and life of Harriet Tubman an American Hero . Cynthia erivo did an amazing job portraying Ms. Tubman's life. She also co-wrote and performed the beautiful theme song Stand Up.
Although the movie is not historically correct it is an attempt to tell the story of Harriet Tubman and her courageous effort to free as many people as she could. Cynthia Erivo is perfect, her energy and presence of being brought Mrs. Tubman back to life.
Put this one on the top of your list of must sees. Definitely a movie that will open your eyes. A slight different spend on history never hurt a good story of facts. Loved it from start to finish. A classic for sure.
