Critic Reviews for Harriet
Ultimately, though, Harriet is impressive, especially given the budget ($17 million).
The whole package is so sleekly watchable, if risk-averse to a fault, that I can't recall a recent time at the cinema where I learned more by thinking less.
Erivo tears through Harriet, a live wire in the heart of a biography of Harriet Tubman that without her might have risked stateliness.
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.
