Cynthia Erivo stars in this extraordinary biopic of Harriet Tubman, charting her escape from slavery and transformation into one of America’s greatest heroes, whose courage, ingenuity and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history. In 1849, she travelled 100 miles on foot to evade her pursuers, arriving at the free state of Philadelphia and joined the Anti-Slavery Society. She embarked on a string of perilous journeys back to the South, rescuing more and more people with each expedition. Erivo’s tough-as-nails performance lies at the heart of this remarkable film – she captures Tubman’s shining spirit and courage with compassion, beautifully portraying an incredible life story that has waited long enough to be told.
