At last there is an adaptation of the life of Harriet Tubman, the female Moses of the mid 19th century in America. I have read all the biographies on the autobiography of Harriet Tubman and thought to myself this is very much like Cecil B. DeMille's 'Union Pacific' and the expansion of the railroad from east to west. Tubman's underground passage is from south to north, leading into Niagara Falls in Canada. There is a 'Negro Burial Ground' near Niagara Falls to this day to commemorate those who made it across the border. Now that I think about it there isn't anyone else that could play Harriet Tubman but Cicely Tyson. Apart from her accent which I can't get a hold of, I think she brings the right emotions to the part.
