Goofs

  • After the passage of the Fugitive Slave Act, William Still gives a speech saying that it allows slave catchers to seek slaves in any state in the Union. Slave catchers had always been able to retrieve slaves from the North, under a law from decades earlier. The Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 did not legalize slave hunting in the North but expanded the powers available to slave catchers (including forcing Northern law enforcement to aid them) and weakened the protections available to those accused of being escaped slaves (such as previous requirements that a suspect's identity as a slave be verified by a jury trial).

Beautiful! I also loved the artistic musical elements. They added depth without taking away from the story!

Despite Erivo's tenacity in the role, the drama feels more stately and impressive than urgent and affecting. It's never uninvolving though, and the script does a solid job of tracing the formation of a courageous freedom fighter out of a scared runaway.

A thoughtful biopic that grows more involving the more it shrugs off its tendency towards the reverential.

A disappointingly standard biopic, one whose technical flaws and paint-by-numbers clichés threaten to overshadow its subject’s compelling story.
