The official trailer for Harriet starring Tony Award-winning Cynthia Erivo is out today!
From Focus Features, Harriet tells the real-life story of iconic woman of faith and freedom fighter, Harriet Tubman.
This is the first film to follow Tubman on her escape from slavery and subsequent missions to free dozens of slaves through the Underground Railroad in the face of growing pre-Civil War adversity.
As the “Moses” of her time and first woman to lead an armed expedition in war, Tubman proves to be the perfect example of a fearless, faithful leader that all people of faith can relate to and admire!
The inspirational film illustrates the power of GOD working through Tubman as she treks through nearly 100 miles of secret passageways to get to freedom – singlehandedly rescuing more than 70 slaves over 19 faith-fueled expeditions.
In theaters November 1st, the film also stars Leslie Odom Jr., Janelle Monáe, and Joe Alwyn.
Directed by Kasi Lemmons, who wrote the screenplay with Gregory Allen Howard.
