In helping her brother escape from prison, Antigone confronts the authorities: the police, the judicial and penal systems, and the father of her friend Haemon. A straight-A student and model citizen until now, she sees the vice-grip tighten around her. But she rejects the law of men for her own sense of justice, dictated by love and loyalty.

Interesting idea let down by poor acting and dialogue
19 November 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

Firstly I applaud any adaption of ancient archetypes. Changing the times is interesting, and the ancients authors fundamentally changed even the morals of the archetype stories. There are very different lessons/conclusions in the Daedalus, Prometheus, Iphigenia & Electra, etc. of course Antigone, part of the Oedipus cycle, was dealt with very differently by Sophocles, Aeschylus and Euripides. . That said this telling is a total failure. It is shallow and pedantic and absurdly puts Antigone'S fate on everyone, making the story nonsense from any perspective.
