    Harriet

    I heard this new called Harriet. It talks about the untold story of Harriet Tubman. I also heard that many people are complaining that this movie is historically inaccurate.

    Re: Harriet

    As far as it being historically inaccurate... Well, it's a movie BASED on her story and they need to fit it into a specific format. If it was made into a series, they could probably make it a lot more accurate. I wager it's designed to hit on the highlights of her story.

    That said, it looks like an excellent film and I will very much like to see it.

    I actually learn everything I need to know about Harriet Tubman at my old childhood school so I'm going to take a pass on this movie.

    Its not about finding the "right path" but more so finding the path that's right for you

    Re: Harriet

    From my understanding they also added in a bunch of really random, stupid, "why in the seven hells did you think this was a good idea, this literally never happened or would've happened--please share with the rest of us whatever drugs you're on" stuff like having the main antagonist be a black slave bounty hunter chasing after her, and having some white slave owner be the savior at the end of the day

    Well, a few people at my job like that movie. Also many people complained that the black actress is British. Like I don't really see the origin of the actress background is a huge issue in my opinion.

    Re: Harriet

    So why make a review thread about it then?

    Because I just heard other people complaining about this movie is anti-black. I mean it sounds interested at first but I just realised is there more to the story than I already know. Like, what's more, is there to know about Harriet Tubman?

    Re: Harriet

    Not everyone knows about her. People like me, for instance, who didn't grow up in the states and therefore didn't learn about her in school. I've heard of her since but only from deliberately reading about her after hearing her name in passing conversation.
