Harriet | ★★★★★★★★★★

I love how this movie deals with Southern Slavery. The complex images of life as a slave is on display. It gives us an insightful view of the faithless cruelty of plantation owners and the magnificent faithful courage of slaves.

Harriet Tubman, played beautifully by Cynthia Erivo, emerges as a woman of faith and courage. I was fascinated by the ways that the Lord guided and directed Harriet as she led slaves to freedom in pre-Civil War America. God would often give her prophetic visions and speak to her as she acted so boldly.

My admiration of Harriet, as an American and as a Christian, swelled as I watched her inspiring story. I think that her story, and that of the underground railroad, should be extolled as one of the greatest in American history.

I really loved this movie and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★★★★.

    1. I loved the way they told Harriet's story. The family separation of slaves was something I had not really understood before.
