Harriet is not just a standard biopic on an extraordinary life, but an embrace of pain and glory and all that comes with it. Harriet shines best with portraying emotion and capturing that through its audacious style of directing, cinematography, and some great performances throughout. The film's script may seem to make the whole deal a bit choppy at times, but the film knows how to handle itself properly and thus doesn't linger to be an issue in the long run. Cynthia Erivo gives one of her best performances to date as the title star, truly capturing every bit of detail and emotion needed to play the true life figure. The use of music and sound throughout the film makes for a thrilling and somber piece of work, all needed to truly tie the film together. Harriet may also struggle a bit to find its footing towards the end, but as it wraps, you can't help but marvel at what a piece of work the film is, let alone Harriet herself.
My Rating: 9.5/10
