The will of a soul lead by the spirit of the Lord
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.
