RowanHarper’s review published on Letterboxd:
Wrote some extra credit at school for both this and 1917 I thought I would log it on here. Didn't actually re watch.
Harriet is very historically accurate in portraying Harriet Tubman's life and her journey to freedom. It shows details in the story such as her families initial reluctance to leave slavery, her husband re-marring after he thinks she drowns, her original name as “minty”. Details like these make Harriet more engaging and educational than it would be otherwise. It also does a great job in showing the inner workings of the underground railroad, you get a really good sense of how the railroad worked and how they were able to accomplish what they did. Just another detail to make the film that much more realistic.
