Critic Reviews for Harriet
[Harriet] takes historical reality and stretches it over the canvas of an old-fashioned adventure story.
Ultimately, though, Harriet is impressive, especially given the budget ($17 million).
So often, historical films are stale and mired in misery, but Harriet has a rare buoyancy.
The whole package is so sleekly watchable, if risk-averse to a fault, that I can't recall a recent time at the cinema where I learned more by thinking less.
