Keke Palmer Says The Movie ‘Harriet’ Is “Absolutely Unbelievable”

Actress, singer, and television personality Keke Palmer, who recently hosted MTV Music And Video Awards, took to Instagram in order to express her appreciation on the biographical film about abolitionist Harriet Tubman, ‘Harriet.’

Palmer first asked her 10 million followers if they had seen the movie, and then said that the movie, directed by Kasi Lemmons was absolutely unbelievable. She continued:

“Obviously heavy themes but told from a very inspired perspective. I felt so empowered watching this movie and I feel it portrayed Harriet as the true superhero she actually was!!!!!”

Then the former co-host of daytime talk show ‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ praised director Lemons, and Cynthia Erivo who portrays Harriet Tubman:

“Kasi Lemons, director of one of my favorite films “Eves Bayou” also directed this and the angles, the score, the locations, the CASTING was all so incredible. It truly felt magical, @cynthiaerivo made me feel like I was actually watching Harriet Tubman herself.”

Then Palmer stated she appreciated the film as an American and thanked both Harriet herself and the creators of the film.

“I can talk about things and give my child something empowering, magical and (some fiction)truthful. Thank you for this! God bless Harriet AND EVERYTHING SHE DID THAT WE DIDN’T HAVE TO DO. 🙏🏾”

As one’s remember the said film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 10, 2019; and received highly favorable reviews. Especially Cynthia Erivo was praised for her performance, so much so that, she was nominated for the Academy Award, Golden Globe, and the Screen Actors Guild Award.
