Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
The Film follows the story of Harriet Tubman (Cynthia Erivo) in her quest to not only claim her own freedom but the freedom of all slaves.
This Film documents the pivotal moments in Harriet Tubman’s adult life, with a focus on her efforts in transporting those enslaved to freedom areas. For those who know this empowering and inspiring Story, the Film won’t tell you anything you didn’t already know. It that has been brought to the big screen through beautiful Cinematography, an excellent Score and a powerful performance from Erivo.
Harriet screens at TIFF on Tue, Sep 10 at Roy Thompson Hall at 6 PM, Tue, Sep 10 at Elgin Theatre at 8 PM, Wed, Sep 11 at Winter Garden Theatre at 3 PM, and Sat, Sep 14 at Scotiabank Theatre at 2:45 PM.

It’s been a relief getting a breather finally and we actually are finding time to see some movies! We saw Joker which filled two theatres completely at an industry screening and it was enthralling seeing Joaquin Phoenix go all in! While it does a number on you, it is well worth getting shaken for.
