Ho Hum Harriet
Putting aside the directing, editing and overall story line the films most egregious aspect may actually be the score. Think cheesy lifetime TV movie style of music. It is so terrible in fact it is actually distracting. This might actually be the only silver lining considering the sluggish pace of the film that also unfortunately only tells one part of Harriet Tubman’s incredible life. It is unfortunate that it has taken Hollywood this long to make a film about Tubman; however, perhaps they should have waited a little longer to get it right.
Harriet Tubman’s Heroes Journey — this film moved me!
Abolitionist Harriet Tubman escaped from Maryland to Philadelphia in 1849 on foot by following the North Star and utilizing the help of the Underground Railroad, a network of secret routes and safe houses set up by white abolitionists and free people of color to help slaves to freedom. She then repeatedly risked her life by going back into the lion’s den over a period of eleven years to lead other slaves to their freedom. She never lost a passenger. This is so damn brave it makes my head spin.
This film served up a substantantial serving of history, embellished by a modicum of fiction. Though it’s not a movie masterpiece, it’s a strong depiction of Harriet’s Heroes Journey that lifted me up for days. Cynthia Erivo’s portrayal of a determined Harriet, known before her liberation as Araminta “Minty” Ross, (and later nicknamed Moses because she helped her people escape to freedom), was stirring; her singing was the gold on the edges. Harriet used spirituals as coded messages to warn fellows of danger or to signal a clear path.
The antagonist in the story is the racist, corrupt system of slavery embodied in part by her heartless owners. Plagued by hypersomnia sleeping spells caused by a head injury when she was thirteen, Minty’s owner Edward Bodess tried to sell her. This would separate her from her family. There were no buyers for her. Angry, Minty prayed, “Oh Lord, if you ain’t never going to change that man’s heart, kill him, Lord, and take him out of the way.” Edward died. Harriet expressed regret for that prayer.
Joe Alwyn played Gideon Brodess, Edward’s grown son, with a conniving, lecherous sneer. Guideon leered after Minty and tormented her. Harriet’s husband was a free black man in theory, but not reality; any future children of the couple would be slaves, regardless of papers granting manumet to Harriet’s kin, which the Brodesses ignored. She and her husband planned to escape together, but Tubman fled alone and travelled a hundred miles through wilderness to Pennsylvania, being followed by her scummy owner Gildeon. Well, screw him, she made it, and became a heroine.
