Despite the amazing performance by Cynthia Erivo, which is really on point, the picture lacks of a galloping rhythm that could have made it be more, but the script is good and does the job which was meant to: educate and unveil. Harriet, this little big strong heroin saved hundreds of souls in an unfair era and through this movie, she just thought us all what the meaning of word "mankind" is.
