Based on the thrilling and inspirational life of an iconic American freedom fighter, HARRIET tells the extraordinary tale of Harriet Tubman‘s escape from slavery and transformation into one of America’s greatest heroes. Her courage, ingenuity, and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history. Dynamic performer Cynthia Erivo earned Oscar nominations for both her stunning portrayal of the titular heroine and for penning the original song, “Stand Up,” in writer-director Kasi Lemmons‘ biopic. With Janelle Monae, Leslie Odom Jr., Joe Alwyn, Jennifer Nettles, Clarke Peters.
“Cynthia Erivo tears through HARRIET, a live wire in the heart of a biography of Harriet Tubman that without her might have risked stateliness.” (Financial Times)
“The film is dramatized in a way that neither exaggerates nor lessens Harriet’s extremely real struggle-no film can tarnish a legacy so profound.” (Chicago Reader)
