Harriet is a biopic that was created to tell Harriet Tubman’s story. As a result of severe beatings, Harriet suffered a head injury that brought strange visions and vivid dreams, which Harriet interpreted as messages from God.
Tubman escaped to Philadelphia in 1849, and soon after, she went back to rescue her family and other slaves. Tubman rescued more than 70 slaves using a series of roads and slave houses, which came to be known as the Underground Railroad. She used the Underground Railroad for eight years in which she claimed to have ‘never lost a passenger.’ Her heroic acts earned her a special place in the black community.
Is Harriet is Netflix?
Harriet is available on Netflix, but only in Poland, South Korea, Ukraine, and Sweden. The film became available in those regions on various dates from late 2020 to mid-2021. Therefore, it is likely that the film will appear in other Netflix regions soon. We will keep you updated.
It is, however, unlikely that Harriet will come to Netflix US. Focus Features, the film’s distributor, is owned by Comcast through NBC. NBC recently rolled out its streaming service, Peacock. It is, therefore unlikely that it will hand streaming rights to Netflix.
