The trailer for Harriet Tubman's biopic is finally here. Cynthia Erivo, Joe Alwyn, Leslie Odom Jr., and Janelle Monae star in the new film directed by Kasi Lemmons. It depicts Tubman's journey to freedom and her decision to return to the South to free her family.
In a 2018 interview with Vanity Fair, Erivo promised 'Harriet' would dig deeper into Tubman's story as a woman “because the woman is what made her a superhero.” It will also cover things like her relationship with her first husband.
The film is set for a November release. See the official trailer below.
