Harriet, a new film from Focus Features starring Cynthia Erivo, has hit theaters to tell the story of Harriet Tubman. Bringing Tubman's incredible story to the screen is long overdue, and director Kasi Lemmons describes it as a different kind of "slave movie." She told Stylecaster,
"Harriet is about the search for freedom and liberation. I loved that she was willing to risk her life and to sacrifice her life for freedom, and to sacrifice her life for others to have freedom."
