A Gem ! - Harriet review by JD

Spoiler Alert

I knew nothing about this movie before it arrived, but it is an absolute gem.

Based on a famous true story ( famous in America) it is well acted and superb cinematography.

All the cast are first rate, but a special mention to the lead, Cynthia Erivo, who is brilliant as the feisty slave in 1849 Maryland who escapes from the plantation.

Highly recommended.

Required Viewing - Harriet review by GS

Spoiler Alert

A tremendous true story  excellently told, displaying the extraordinary courage of the title character in her fight against the hideous iniquity of slavery.

Fine performances from all the main characters but especially from Cynthia Eviro as the eponymous hero.

Well worth watching and for many, I suspect, required viewing.
