Harriet is Harriet Tubman (Cynthia Erivo), an iconic freedom fighter, and this film chronicles her escape from slavery and subsequent missions to free dozens of slaves through the Underground Railroad in the face of growing pre-Civil War adversity.
Personally, however, this isn’t my sort of film so I’ll be giving it a miss.
Harriet is released in the US on November 1st, but the UK date isn’t yet set.
