Harriet ★★

You could try to argue that Harriet has an importance as a film to bring attention to the heroic life of Harriet Tubman, but the truth is, a majority of Americans already know who she is and what she did. In short, this is just dull Oscar bait. The pacing is all over the place; it starts off slow and then rushes through the plot before forgetting to have a resolution. And the score is just awful. It's full of generic emotional swells and lazy background dramatics. There is no life in the music, and nothing to this film. That is all.
